R4D provides policy analysis, critical information, decision-making tools, and policy advice to governments, civil society organizations, and international funders in order to stimulate positive change. With expertise in many areas – including economics and finance, health policy, education, and governance – R4D works with leaders, globally and at country level, to design and test solutions to some of the world’s biggest development challenges. R4D's stated mission is to "spark innovative ideas and catalyze high impact actions that reduce poverty and improve lives in developing countries."
