Step 9: Complete the Research Plan

Before you end your field practicum you should be ready to present your agreed upon deliverable to the IFAD-host. This will be a DRAFT which you should finalize by revising and editing upon returning to your academic institution. Examples of deliverables include a needs assessment; an evaluation of an ongoing initiative, analysis of value chain stakeholder capacity or a marketing study.  In addition to the deliverable you are also responsible for writing a research report that is an outgrowth of the research proposal.
