The U.S. Global Development Lab is a new entity within USAID that brings together a diverse set of partners to discover, test, and scale breakthrough solutions to achieve what human progress has only now made possible -- the end of extreme poverty by 2030. But we can't do it alone. Let's co-create a sustainable future for everyone.
