At CEGA, we believe that evidence should be used to make decisions about how development funding is spent.

That’s why we invest in research that is actionable and can be used by policymakers to inspire equitable growth. Our portfolio of research projects spans 10 program areas and over 38 countries. For more information on the research projects we support, click on the tiles below.
