SKOCH has been assessing impact of governance and inclusion projects for over two decades now. Its work is considered as the gold standard in evaluation and referred to by researchers, policy makers, legislators and civil society alike. The SKOCH Centre of Excellence (CoE) supported by Ministry of Tribal Affairs, Government of India will identify, document and recognise best practices related to tribal affairs from across India. Such best practices are identified, awarded and documented for the following reasons:

  1. For others to take note of and learn from.
  2. To help replicate and scale.
  3. To create an institutional memory of what works, and lessons learnt.
  4. To provide field research-based policy inputs.
  5. To create and encourage role models that provide a reference point.
  6. To create material that may be usable for Information, Communication and Education.

Best Practices

Research based case studies of select projects are produced and shared with domain experts including larger audience groups of practitioners. These are available in the public domain for larger dissemination. The aim is to document contemporary Indian history of tribal best practices and to contribute towards forming the largest online Knowledge Repository on the subject.
