For US Policymakers


US policies on immigration, trade, climate change, foreign assistance, and more affect the poor and vulnerable throughout the world. The Center for Global Development strives to make its research in these areas relevant, practical, and applicable.

CGD’s policy outreach team is your point of contact for timely, relevant answers to development policy questions. CGD experts regularly provide testimony on development issues before House and Senate committees, submit written statements for the Congressional Record, brief congressional staff on research findings, and participate in discussions with members and staff. The policy outreach team is also the primary point of contact for sharing information and policy perspectives with development-focused nongovernmental organizations.
