I was recently in Odisha to carry out a qualitative survey using the SQUEAC (Semi-Quantitative Evaluation of Access and Coverage) method. In reality, SQUEAC is not a survey method but an investigation method: no questionnaire, no quantitative data to collect, no set out measures to take. But there is no challenge that DCOR will decline and after a few days of hard work, they became skilled investigators and carried out hundreds of discussions with the field stakeholders and expertly gather all the relevant information we were looking for.I was impressed by the quality of their work: even Sherlock Holmes could have not done better! Bravo to the entire DCOR team for carrying out the task professionally, tirelessly and with determined dedication.
