Our mission is to inspire and inform policy and practice which lead to the reduction of poverty, the alleviation of suffering and the achievement of sustainable livelihoods in developing countries.

We do this by locking together high quality applied research, practical policy advice, and policy-focused dissemination and debate.

We work with partners in the public and private sectors, in both developing and developed countries.

Summary of relevant work: 

As well as 12 core research programmes, we also host a number of flagship projects and run the ODI Fellowship Scheme. Read more in our Annual Report 2013-2014  and our strategic plan for 2014-2017(in downloads).
