Our Experience

Conectiv Cities: Tourism Recovery Efforts by Local Municipalities

Past Experience in Market Research

Conectiv Cities: Tourism Recovery Efforts by Local Municipalities

The objective of the proposed activity was to support municipal governments in selected countries to work towards the recovery of their tourism sectors. Using an online platform provided local authorities with the knowledge and networks to restart their visitor economies, with possible investments in infrastructure by leveraging the private sector and focusing on services that support sustainable destinations. We paid attention to maximizing economic inclusion for local communities, women, and SMEs while minimizing negative impacts on the environment and building resilience to the effects of climate change.
IDI prepared a team of enumerators and focus group leads in Nepal, Romania, Botswana, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe and Uganda. A report was compiled and hosted online forums for local municipality officers to share their experiences.

Past Experience in Market Research

TVET Sector Analysis for Nepal- Baseline Survey

IDI conducted data collection and analysis of the TVET supply side, underpinning the strategic TVET Sector Reform Plan (TSRP) drafting. The specific objective of the program was to strengthen and implement more effective policy in the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) sector, responsive to labor market needs. The program piloted an integrated Public Private Partnership approach.
IDI's research team reviewed and analyzed the data and prepared the questionnaire and inception report. We trained and prepared many enumerators to conduct surveys in seven provinces in the remotely directed field survey. We collected the latest documents and statistical data, interviewed the parties concerned, hosted the provincial workshops to analyze the current situation and extracted the issues. The report was submitted to the Government of Nepal.
