Washington MonumentetIn 2019 the Embassy of Denmark in Washington D.C. initiated support for the two following independent development research projects.

The Brookings Institution

For over 100 years, experts at Brookings have brought empirical research and fact-based analysis to the most important problems facing the nation and the world. This includes evidence-based research on the unique challenges facing developing countries. The support the Embassy provides to Brookings will go to independent scholarship on pressing challenges in developing countries and focus on climate change as a systemic threat. The Embassy is excited to support Brookings on this important project.

CSIS - Center for Strategic & International Studies

CSIS is an internationally acknowledged think tank conducting policy studies and strategic analyses of political, economic and security issues throughout the world. Through the partnership, CSIS will conduct three separate work streams covering 1) the forced migration crisis, 2) antimicrobial resistance on food security and 3) youth, peace & security. These three areas have a direct link to the global development agenda and reaching the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. The Embassy is excited to launch this partnership. The Embassy’s support to CSIS will go to independent research within these three topics over the next three years. You can read more about CSIS and their work here.
