The Global Development Research Center is an independent nonprofit think tank that carries out initiatives in the spheres of environment, urban, community, economy and information, and at scales that are effective.

GDRC aims to consolidate disparate issues, themes and topics into one umbrella to highlight their interconnectedness and interdisciplinary nature. With the focus on knowledge transfer and information dissemination, GDRC targets the micro scale – at the level of the man-on-the-street, where most everyday decisions are taken.

Recognizing that research and information delivered at the right level and at the right time is central to economic growth and sustainable development, GDRC facilitates information packaging and delivery for informed decision-making and targeted interventions.

Through its online and offline resources, GDRC seeks to build and mobilize the capacity of its target constituency to understand the importance of knowledge, and facilitate the use of information for policy dialogue and development.
