Investing in Research to Accelerate Development Solutions

Speeches Shim

Solving today's development challenges requires actionable information facilitated by forward-thinking scientific research. USAID’s Research Division in the Innovation, Technology, and Research (ITR) Hub invests in research and research utilization through higher education institutions in the United States and partner countries to discover, test, and scale up solutions for greater impact. USAID Bureaus and Missions and other international development practitioners also use our programs and services for better results. The Research Division is continually strengthening the capacity for scientific inquiry in USAID partner countries, increasing the creation and use of knowledge and innovations and providing decision-makers with the best available, locally informed evidence to develop policies that can benefit and transform society.
