Welcome to Development Research Foundation

Development Research Foundation (DEVRC)  is a non-profit think tank that conducts independent, high quality scholarly research on growth and development of developing countries. We engage in research on governance and economic policy issues in developing countries. DEVRC’s mission is to enhance development outcomes in poor countries through evidence-based research.

DEVRC is poised to assist in disseminating best practices to enable governments of developing economies improve their economic policy implementation. The Foundation carries out applied research and presents policy options to enhance macroeconomic stability, fiscal transparency and accountability. Also, DEVRC advocates for greater fiscal transparency and accountability, reduction in leakages of public funds and improvements in governments’ delivery of social and public services. In addition, DEVRC engages in capacity building with the goal of fostering rapid economic growth and alleviating poverty in developing countries.
