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

Through competitive grant-making, we fund actionable research that can be used by policymakers to inspire equitable growth. We believe that grant competitions generate the highest-quality research; attract new talent and mobilize networks; and foster stewardship, transparency, and fairness.
