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

CGD’s research on aid effectiveness focuses on the policies and practices of bilateral and multilateral donors. Combining strong research credentials and high-level government experience, our experts analyze existing programs, monitor donor innovations, and design novel approaches to deliver more effective aid. CGD research also provides insight into how policies ranging from trade to migration to investment undermine or complement foreign aid policies.
