At its core, CSDR is a research institution. Our founders, project teams, and the people we work with, approach problems systematically and scientifically. We ask the right questions, and use suitable tools to find lasting solutions to real world problems. We possess the distinct ability to frame research questions that can address policy challenges. Our efforts guide policy actors and shape opinions on issues that matter the most. Our research also impacts and shapes the narrative, opinions and understanding of the general citizenry. CSDR’s experts and partners are constantly pushing the boundaries of innovation in policy-making.

Currently we have four research centers that build resources, produce cutting-edge training modules, and assist in project design, implementation and monitoring.
