Through objective, high-quality research and analysis, we inform decisions at all levels that deliver better use of resources to help the poor.
We champion transparency, the role and effective use of information, and support people to hold their representatives to account as well as informing policy and practice. We have centres in the United Kingdom, Kenya and Uganda and have partners globally including governments, academic institutions, the private sector and citizen representatives.Sign up to our newsletter
Since 1992, we have been working with governments, multilateral organisations and NGOs. Our programmes of work have a focus on poverty elimination and we have a particular expertise in analyzing, interpreting and improving information about international aid and development and making it more transparent and accessible.
We have offices in Bristol in the south west of England and in Nairobi, Kenya. The African Hub, in Nairobi, provides a regional perspective to our work on eradicating poverty. The Hub sees better information in East Africa as being a fundamental tool to improve policies and influence the allocation of resources to address chronic and extreme poverty in the region.

Global poverty is falling at an unprecedented rate. 22% of the world’s people are living on less than $1.25 a day compared with 52% in 1980, but 1.2 billion people still live below the poverty line. To plan for and finance the end of poverty by 2025 we need to understand the scale and scope of all potential resources including aid, domestic revenues, private sector spending and that of NGOs. Investments to End Poverty is an initiative which provides independent, reliable, accessible data and information to make this happen. It proposes a more rigorous framework to ensure that all resources are better used and engages with a wide range of actors including companies, aid agencies, governments, foundations, civil society and the military to share knowledge and understanding on how poverty can be ended.
