AidData's blog is a first cut of our research in international development
Researchers from AidData will travel to Côte d’Ivoire to lead development of a USAID-funded geospatial data center.
A new AidData report illuminates the black box of how leaders source evidence and use it to accelerate development in low- and middle-income countries
How do the global goals crowd in international financing and inform domestic priorities? A new AidData report assesses the historical baseline for funding to the SDGs.
Five years in the making, AidData’s data collection effort has captured more than USD $350 billion in foreign aid and other forms of state financing that China committed to five major regions of the world.
Relying on averages is worsening inequality within countries. We look at whether aid financing reaches the poorest regions, and find that donors are missing the mark.
