Impact

We want our research to have a profound and far-reaching impact on the world’s poor.

Collaboration among academics, policymakers, development organizations, and business leaders is key to making progress. When research insights reach the people who are shaping policy and practice in the developing world, great things can happen. And when the people who are working on the front lines share their experiences with us, it stimulates new research ideas that can make an even greater impact.

While the impact of our research is often hard to measure in a moment, we are constantly striving to turn insights into action, to make progress, to change lives.
