Inclusive Governance and Evidence-Informed Policymaking

The Hewlett Foundation has supported government transparency, participation, and accountability in low and middle-income countries for over two decades. We make grants to foster inclusive and responsive governance in service of all people, particularly those who have experienced the most marginalization. We partner with movements, coalitions, media, and membership organizations that use information to increase government responsiveness to underserved populations’ needs and aspirations. We also support organizations that help policymakers find and use high-quality evidence in their decisions. This includes building trust, collaboration, and capacity among those who generate, share, and use evidence.
