As a community product, the survey’s effectiveness is directly impacted by the level of participation from the community. Therefore, we generally require survey participation in order to subscribe.On a limited basis, organizations can subscribe to the reports without participating in the survey. This option is available only when an organization is not yet operating in-country. The cost is $1,943 per country for non-profit NGOs; commercial development organizations will be charged $2,588 per country.
