Exploring new thinking on development with a focus on entrepreneurship, innovation, and market-driven economic growth.

The Project on U.S. Leadership in Development is focused on leveraging all U.S. assets—the private sector in particular—to promote economic development, improve livelihoods, and reduce poverty worldwide. The project seeks to renew the discourse in Washington and develop a fresh, actionable set of policy recommendations for 2012 and beyond. Find out more about the project.
