UK Development Leadership

Support More Work Like This.

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

The UK has historically been the largest provider of aid to the multilateral system and has often led reforms that have accelerated development. Following the UK leaving the European Union on 31 January 2020 and the near-simultaneous arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic, the UK has broadly maintained its commitment to multilateralism. CGD’s work aims to identify opportunities for the UK to take the lead in tackling development challenges at the global level and through the multilateral system.
