Phase I research projects

In 2009, the PSPPD issued a Call for Proposals (CfP) which led to 13 research projects being awarded to nine universities and the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC). Many of the projects used the National Income Dynamics Study (NIDS) first survey round, known as Wave 1, dataset to analyse their areas of interest which were linked to the theme of the CfP, “Eradicating poverty and inequality: Towards well-targeted programmes that strengthen the impact of public policy, harness human capability and promote self-sufficiency”.

The grant topics were divided into five research themes:


All research outputs from Phase I can also be found in the Knowledge Repository.
