About Innovations for Poverty Action:
Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) is an international non-profit research organization dedicated to discovering and promoting effective solutions to global poverty problems. IPA works in partnership with development partners and academic researchers to create and evaluate approaches potential solutions to poverty problems using randomized evaluations in the fields of health, education, microfinance, governance and agriculture. We also mobilize and support these decision makers to use these solutions to build better programs and policies at scale.
About the Project: The overall goal of this project is to pilot an approach that integrates gender into MCC’s constraints analysis framework. To this end, we will design a set of flexible diagnostic tools that include both quantitative survey instruments and complimentary qualitative data collection approaches to identify those issues which most constrain women’s access to employment and entrepreneurship opportunities in Malawi. This work will inform the development of a mixed-methods approach to understand how benefit streams for economic growth due to low participation of women in employment and entrepreneurship can be unlocked through removing constraints identified with the diagnostic tools developed under this task.
To answer these questions, we will be conducting surveys in hundreds of villages in Malawi, surveying various households. We will collect information on demographics, health, assets, input usage, agriculture and more. The Field Officer (FO) hired for this position will be part of a team of surveyors for our full-scale survey in rural areas across Malawi. Field Officers are responsible for meeting with respondents, organizing survey activities and maintaining data quality during surveys. The Field Officer will work under the general supervision of the Senior Field Manager and Senior Field Officers and within the limits of Innovations for Poverty Action – Malawi Policies and procedures.
