Your contribution makes it possible for the Center’s researchers to devise practical, evidence-based solutions for today’s most pressing development challenges.

The European Union is the largest aid donor in the world and gives over half of global aid. As the single largest source, the EU takes a central position and plays an important role in facilitating progress on global development. Its policies have a major bearing on global development—from climate, to migration, to trade, agriculture, and security. CGD is bringing its innovative thinking and evidence-based, practical propositions to the unique European context.  

CGD’s work on European Development Policy is led by the Europe Program.
