To ensure quality and accuracy, Impact Options conducts verification interviews of well-placed sources of information to ensure that information collected through public media are well validated. Our interest is that once bits and pieces of information concerning corruption, for example, is captured and documented through our database on a daily basis, across all media sources, we can be able to demonstrate the bigger picture of the corruption syndrome in a manner that will take keen attention of policy makers and other stakeholders. In other words, we want to capture and aggregate data to gain big data that will draw attention and provoke action, beyond what would otherwise be small and scattered data that filters in various media channels without impact.

Monitoring information trends relate to the importance of information gathering and analysis for key development theme including:

  • Accountability (example, media monitoring of ‘Corruption’)
