Core Support to Global Development Network (GND) - Phase II

The Global Development Network (GDN) was launched by the World Bank in 1999 on the premise that good policy research, properly applied, can accelerate development and improve people's lives. Working mainly through regional networks, GDN supports economic and, increasingly, social science research in and on the developing countries. The year 2008 marks the 10th anniversary of the Global Development Network (GDN). This grant will allow GDN to continue funding world-class home-grown research in support of inclusive and sustainable development. In doing so, GDN will promote developing country research capacity and ownership; global, North-South and South-South collaboration; and evidence-based analysis of sensitive policy issues.
