Welcome to the New CGD Website

May 24, 2018

The Center for Global Development is pleased to announce the launch of its new website!

The modernized site brings you more of the same great research and analysis, with a renewed focus on how CGD’s research relates to current events and global development debates—and with a sleek updated design of course.

We designed this site with you, the reader, in mind, to make sure you can find the data, evidence, and commentary you crave quickly and easily.

We are also introducing a few new bells and whistles, which you can learn about below!

Simplified navigation with large, easy-to-read menus

Our new site has a large navigation menu to help you find what you’re looking for easily, or discover something new. From Global Health to to Education, the first section, “Our Work,” pictured below, helps you find the topics and work that interest you.

We have also consolidated our main menu (in white below) into four sections to help you find what you’re looking for faster.

New hub for timely commentary and analysis

This new section provides readers with a central location for the latest CGD research and commentary on today’s pressing issues and policy debates. From what our experts are saying about the recent Ebola outbreak in the DRC and financing for pandemic preparedness, to our views on UK Secretary of State for International Development Penny Mordaunt’s latest speech, to a preview of the G-7 development ministers meeting from Canadian Development Minister Marie Claude Bibeau—you can find it all here!

Easy share, register, and subscribe options

It’s simpler than ever before to keep up with CGD updates. We recently launched a series of new newsletters to keep you informed about CGD’s work—whatever your interests may be, including ones that focus on:

Comments or questions? We’ll be sending out a survey in the coming weeks to collect your feedback. Please acknowledge that there may be occasional glitches as we continue to update and refine the new site.

We hope you like the updates. Stay tuned for more soon!
