UPLIFTING AND CREATING DEVELOPMENT SOLUTIONS

 

Chimango Research provides technical expertise and insights to clients with an interest in development research. So far, Chimango has performed technical and statistical analysis of data for governments, NGOs, private sector clients and development agencies. In the future, we plan to expand to provide training to clients on understanding and using data. We will also link development companies with local partners and help them to understand domestic conditions, strengthening their proposals for local research and intervention.

The word ‘Chimango’ means ‘a tying together’. Chimango is passionate about strengthening links between research, policy and practice in order to increase developmental impact.

She has also been involved in programmes that help to bridge the gap between research and policy using a variety of methods.

She has published extensively and has written numerous op-eds for many
of South Africa’s leading newspapers. Linda is passionate about capacity
building and nurturing the talent of emerging female researchers. Linda has a
PhD in Economics from the University of Cape Town. Her PhD was the winner of the 2009 Founder’s Medal, which is awarded by the Economics Society of South Africa for the top PhD in Economics in South Africa each year.
