The LIVES project logical framework requires that we conduct rigorous impact evaluation at the end of the project life. In the past few months, many of the LIVES project team members were out in the field to collect household level baseline survey data. The surveys made use of Computer Assisted Personal Interviewer (CAPI) technology to administer the questionnaires. The actual field work took about two months. The data collected will also be used to conduct quantitative diagnostic analysis during the lifetime of the project.

Blogs are proving to be one of the best mechanisms to bring out content to a wider audience, especially in the research and development environment where detailed research outputs of many pages are written and hardly read.
