Project on U.S. Leadership in Development
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 2015 and beyond. Find out more about the project.
In 2012, CSIS convened the Executive Council on Development – a bipartisan group of leaders from government, business, NGOs, and philanthropy – to explore how the U.S. government and private sector can work together to support the economic success of developing countries.
