The Centre for Consultancy, Research, and Development (CCORD) was founded in 2008 in response to an overwhelming demand for data, research, and information in the most challenging and conflict-prone environments of East Africa. We have built our reputation on a commitment to quality, transparency, and an endless dedication to meaningful development solutions for the populations we work with.
CCORD unites a network of professionals with extensive hands-on experience managing and implementing a diverse array of research assignments in the region. Our experts bring to the table years of collective knowledge executing comprehensive monitoring and evaluation projects, and are well versed in the highest industry standards for ethical research.
By leveraging our ability to penetrate deeply into difficult geographies of East Africa, CCORD offers development actors a clear, precise view of dynamic situations that would otherwise remain obscure. Our research and reporting provides data, analysis, and synthesis that empowers key actors to make the most well-informed decisions possible, enabling them to effectively answer the uniquely challenging questions facing crisis actors, governments, NGOs, and private entities today.
Through its years of experience, its institutional relationships, and its network of highly capable consultants, field teams, and technical experts, CCORD offers its clients an attractive combination of international consulting quality with localized, real- time access to all of Somalia without compromise
