Smart, shared international development solutions for a more prosperous, equitable and resilient world

Our Work in International Development 

International development focuses on improving the human condition through multi-sectoral, inclusive solutions that lead to sustainable economic growth, climate resilience, improved food security, quality education and healthcare, environmental protection, and greater prosperity.

RTI's International Development Advantage

RTI International is both a global research institute and a leading international development organization. We combine powerful international development capabilities with those of our partners to co-create smart, shared solutions for a more prosperous, equitable, and resilient world. 

Carefully listening to our clients and partners, we collaborate to advance sustainable, multi-sectoral solutions for the most difficult development challenges. In all that we do, we strive for transformative change built on equity and inclusion.  

Our clients and partners trust us to deliver custom programs built on evidence and driven by learning.  

Our international development experts assess the state of knowledge, conduct independent research to generate new insights, and apply evidence to advance effective approaches. With the combined technical and operational ability to manage complex global projects, we learn as we implement and adapt our efforts based on what is working best, not simply what was planned.
