Governance and Economic Development

We pursue innovative approaches and build on best practices to create the foundation for and to promote democratic governance and economic development.

Working alongside global partners, public institutions, the private sector, and civil society, we help build more effective, accountable, and responsive institutions and policies at the national, regional, and local levels of government. We believe an integrated approach using cross-sectoral strategies—incorporating service delivery and the social sectors, such as health and education—achieve the best results.

RTI's extensive survey research and program evaluation capacities also enable us to provide scientific solutions to our client's growing demands for evaluating the impact of governance and economic development programs. Our goal is to help build more effective, accountable, and responsive institutions and policies at the national, regional, and local levels of government. We are achieving this goal through the following focus areas.
