The purpose of this assignment is to pick a research topic to pitch to your team.

Your Topic Pitch must provide the following:

(1) A clear identification of a development problem and intervention.

a. What is the problem? What is the intervention? Describe the problem as it is defined by the organization (government agency, international NGO, development institution, etc.) and how they understand their intervention as a solution.

a. Who is leading it? Who is responsible for implementation?

b. Who are the targets of development?

b. Where is this taking place? Identify actual geographies of this intervention. Is this an international model; a “best practice”?

(2)

Potential data sources through which you can evaluate actual implementation and emerging issues.

(3) An annotated list of references. At least three of the sources must come from either academic peer-reviewed journals or presses, or ‘grey literature’ sources (e.g., international, governmental or NGO sources). Grey literature sources must be annotated with an identification of the source and an evaluation of its credibility.

Potential Leads for Topics:

1. Search for projects related to a personal interest

2. Look at lists of development NGOs and agencies and then look at the projects they are engaged in. Here are some websites:
