The Pardee Global Human Progress Initiative

Offering Bold New Ideas for Socioeconomic Development and Developing Countries

The Pardee Initiative for Global Human Progress is a new approach to the chronic problems faced by the developing world. We don't think the answer lies in more basic research. Instead, we focus on topics where evidence is available and where there are motivated and active groups working to use that evidence to improve conditions on the ground. We work in areas where what's needed is experimentation, collaboration, and implementation.
