PSPPD I research

In 2009, in phase one of the Programme, the PSPPD issued a Call for Proposals (CfP) under the theme Eradicating poverty and inequality: Towards well-targeted programmes that strengthen the impact of public policy, harness human capability and promote self-sufficiency. Through this CfP, 13 research projects were 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.

The programme also funded a number of smaller research projects and produced a series of policy briefs and newsletters, which were published through the Policy> Action Network (P>AN).


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