Global Partners

GDN works with Regional Network Partners in almost every region of the world. This ensures generation of research by those best placed to understand the complexities of the challenges faced by different regions to mitigate poverty. Many of our partners are networks and allow for flexible and fluent production of knowledge and its translation into policy. GDN is managed by a small secretariat in New Delhi, India, though the bulk of GDN-sponsored activities are organized through the Regional Network Partners:
