The Center for Global Development is an independent, nonpartisan think tank that works to reduce global poverty and improve lives through economic research that drives better policy and practice by the world’s top decision makers. The center’s research and policy engagement are structured around seven program areas: U.S. development policy initiatives; U.K. and European Union development policy; global health policy; migration, displacement, and humanitarian policy; sustainable development finance; education; and technology and development., The center will also pursue research and policy engagement in four emerging, cross-cutting policy areas. The first is COVID-19 and the global response, building on the significant body of research, commentary and policy engagement that the center has mounted in the first three months of the pandemic including analysis of economic and social impacts on low-income countries, recommendations for international financing, applications of an advanced-market commitment for a vaccine, the public health response and much more. Other cross-cutting areas include the role of China in development, climate finance, and gender equity.This grant serves many goals across GDP’s portfolio, as the grantee both generates high-quality evidence and has outsized influence in policy in areas related to women’s economic empowerment, reproductive health, fiscal transparency, and data governance. The center is influential across the evidence-informed policymaking field, serving as a reference point for evidence professionals globally, both in terms of content and tactics. (Strategy: Evidence-Informed Policymaking.)
