Our mission is to inspire and inform policy and practice which lead to the reduction of poverty, the alleviation of suffering and the achievement of sustainable livelihoods in developing countries.
We do this by locking together high quality applied research, practical policy advice, and policy-focused dissemination and debate.
We work with partners in the public and private sectors, in both developing and developed countries.
ODI is an independent think tank with more than 230 staff, including researchers, communicators and specialist support staff. We provide high-quality research, policy advice, consultancy services and tailored training – bridging the gap between research and policy and using innovative communication to mobilise audiences.
As a registered charity, ODI is supported by grants and donations from foundations, non-governmental organisations, the private sector, governments, multilateral agencies and academia. Download the full list of funders.
