We believe good policy drives progress. By providing evidence-based policy analysis, we help countries to improve economic, social and environmental outcomes.

Our research provides authoritative data and analysis on trade, investment, finance and technology. And it offers solutions to the major challenges facing developing countries, particularly the poorest and most vulnerable nations.

Beyond tailored analysis and policy recommendations, our research has also generated global standards that govern responsible sovereign lending and borrowing, investment, entrepreneurship, competition and consumer protection and trade rules.
