Since inception we followed the path of research and documentation which helps in evolving us to the present status. On the basis of grass root experience & need of the community ISARD plans to development activities in the areas.

Baseline/community Need Assessment Survey

Households & Community Based Baseline Survey and Needs Assessment
Before starting any developmental progamme, ISARD conduct household & community based Baseline Survey and Needs Assessment on the issue based among the targeted area. The objective of the Baseline Survey and Needs Assessment is to gain information on the economic, social and education status of the target population for planning strategy for programme interventions.

The baseline studies attempt to articulate the relationship between social and economic dynamics, the socio-economic capitals and other amenities available to the households and community. Community Needs Assessment has been considered as a tool for identifying gaps in people and community needs, and therefore mainstreaming real development opportunities into the community systems.
