Large-Scale Surveys PROJECTS
Kimetrica was contracted by DFID to undertake a client feedback survey related to the capacity building services provided by the African Risk Capacity (ARC) Agency to its member countries. The survey instruments were designed and administered by the Kimetrica team through telephone interviews to Government representatives of 11 member countries. The survey aimed to determine ARC Member States' satisfaction with the ARC Agency services. The findings of these surveys will contribute to the improvement of ARC capacity building activities in the future.

Research and Evaluation PROJECTS
With the significant expansion of HIV/AIDS, TB and OVC programmes in Africa, there is both an urgent need to meet the demand for expanding programmes and, at the same time, address the increased food security and nutritional needs of programme clients. Under a contract with UNAIDS, Kimetrica conducted a study on the feasibility and potential impact on smallholder incomes of market opportunities for supplying food to support antiretroviral therapy (ART) and Tuberculosis (TB) treatment programmes and Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) services in Africa. Kimetrica conducted case studies in six African countries to gain insight and practical knowledge of the potential benefits, costs, risks and constraints of investing in smallholder supply chains for donor-funded health and social protection programmes. In addition, Kimetrica's staff mapped potential partners in 20 African countries, ranging from NGOs to farmer groups to health facilities that can manage procurement of food between small farmers and social protection programmes. The study’s findings were used to develop programmes to support smallholder production and to provide nutritional support to HIV/AIDS, TB and OVC beneficiaries.

The Management of Indigenous Vegetation for the Rehabilitation of Degraded Rangelands in the Arid Zone of Africa Project addressed one of the greatest environmental problems of the arid and semi-arid lands (ASALs) of Africa – that of land degradation. The project’s main goal was to develop a web-based information portal for knowledge management (KM). The project combined community-based indigenous knowledge, the findings of scientific research and past practical experience to rehabilitate degraded ecosystems and conserve biodiversity within an internet-based information system. The system facilitated an exchange of knowledge and experience and fostered the development of conservation models and best practices, which could be transferred elsewhere within the continent. The KM system was the only comprehensive information system available for researchers, policy makers and project implementers to access information on drylands and collaborate and share information through forums and discussion boards.
