The GENS Researchers are embracing the new ways of doing research. Setting up of GENS Living Labs in Groenheuwel in Paarl and Mathare in Nairobi is the core of GENS Research. It requires us to engage with the communities and collect both quantitative and qualitative data. Qualitative data collection involves face to face engagements. However, how can we collect qualitative data when the conventional methods are no longer applicable?

The curious GENS Team is exploring innovative ways of doing both qualitative and quantitative research. We see the current situation as a positive unintended consequence that the GENS Trilateral Chair hopes to contribute!
