At CEGA, we believe that evidence should inform decisions about how development funding is spent.

Through competitive grant-making, we fund actionable research that can be used by policymakers to improve lives. We believe that grant competitions generate the highest-quality research, attract new talent and mobilize networks, and foster stewardship, transparency, and fairness. Below you can browse all CEGA-funded research projects—spanning dozens of topic areas and over 61 countries.
