Results for Development Institute (R4D) is an independent international group dedicated to reducing poverty and improving human welfare in low- and middle-income countries, with a focus on the most disadvantaged and vulnerable. Its mission is to encourage high-impact investments in poor people by:
Seeding new thinking, implementation methods, and simple measures of results
Supporting innovative financing arrangements that reduce market, government, and institutional barriers
Improving accountability of governments and private providers for results
Improving institutional arrangements that help households manage the financial risks of poor health and the costs of investing in their children
Influencing international agendas relevant to these issues.
What makes R4D unique is our people! They come from diverse backgrounds with experience both in international development and the private sector – and all believe strongly in our mission - to unlock solutions to tough development challenges. Some of our staff have worked on Wall Street, in top consulting firms and at international organizations like the World Bank, while others have spent their careers prior to joining us, on the ground, in the field, with NGOs in developing countries. We also pride ourselves in being a training ground for interns and junior professionals with limited experience, but with tremendous creativity, drive, and intelligence. Those who do best at R4D are individuals who are motivated to uncover new approaches, ideas or solutions to development challenges.
