  • The Center for Global Development is a non-profit think tank based in Washington, D.C, United States, that focuses on international development. It was founded in November 2001 by former senior U.S. official Edward W. Scott, director of the Peterson Institute for International Economics, C. Fred Bergsten, and Nancy Birdsall. Birdsall, the former Vice President of the Inter-American Development Bank and former Director of the Policy Research Department at the World Bank, became the Center's first President. In 2014, it was announced that Lawrence Summers would serve as Board Chair effective May 1. CGD was ranked the 4th most prominent think tank in the international development sphere by University of Pennsylvania's 2013 Global Go To Think Tank Index Report. Recently, Foreign Policy Magazine's Think-Tank Index listed CGD as one of the top 15 overall think-tanks in the USA. CGD's stated mission is "to reduce global poverty and inequality by encouraging policy change in the U.S. and other rich countries through rigorous research and active engagement with the policy community. The Center considers itself to be a 'think and do' tank, with an emphasis on producing research that is channeled into practical policy proposals.
