USDFC Monitor

USDFC Monitor logo

The USDFC Monitor is a platform for information, reasoned analysis, practical recommendations, and evidence-based discussion of important issues that will face the United States’ new full-service development finance institution. Drawing inspiration from a similar endeavor launched by CGD to track and inform the early days of the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the USDFC Monitor to provide a mix of timely commentary and in-depth analysis. 

The USDFC Monitor is part of CGD’s US Development Policy initiative that seeks to broaden the US government’s approach to development while strengthening existing foreign assistance tools.
