Our research, developed through long-term partnerships with policy stakeholders, feeds directly into better decisions making to increase growth and reduce poverty. Over the last 3 years, 465 projects across our partner and engagement countries significantly impacted policy discussions and/or decisions. A small selection of these projects and their impact are summarised here.

To design transformative policies, countries can’t simply import solutions from elsewhere. Our research:
- informs decisions on changes to a specific existing policy or on the development of a new policy.
- feeds into broader economic policy strategies and high-level agenda setting.
- supports the development of better systems, processes and tools that facilitate the use of data in decision-making.
- builds capacity through research-policy partnerships
