Grants to this Grantee
for bolstering engagement with policymakers, influencers, and researchers in Africa
AidData is a research lab at William & Mary that equips decision makers with evidence to more effectively design, monitor, and evaluate policies and investments that affect the well-being of people living in low- and middle-income countries. Their work includes helping decision makers use new methods such as geospatial evaluation tools, tracking of all types of financial flows and assessing to what extent resources reach the most vulnerable. This grant will enable AidData to partner with African organizations on new research directions. The project includes building a strong working relationship with the Ghana Center for Democratic Development, a long-standing grantee of our TPA strategy. (Strategy: Evidence-Informed Policymaking)
