Research Advisory Committee

The project has at its core the values of collaborative working, capacity-building and impactful research leading to positive change. Consequently, a collaborative and consultative research approach has been adopted. This approach is in part operationalized by working with a Research Advisory Committee (RAC) with eminent experts as members, in order to seek their guidance on the implementation of the research project. 

The inaugural meeting was held on 20 October 2022, and it was conducted online.
