              The Kindest Cuts of All

              If further cuts are to come from the ODA budget, how should they be selected and managed? And is there a way to rescue those things of greatest value in the portfolio? In a new note, I argue that there is—and that such a process can improve the quality of ODA spending in perpetuity.

              The EU Migration Pact: Putting Talent Partnerships into Practice

              This is the second of three blogs written by the Center for Global Development focused on the EU’s New Pact on Migration and Asylum. The first focused on why both returns and legal pathways are needed to effectively manage migration. This blog focuses on how to operationalize Talent Partnerships.

              A Platform to Support the Researchers and Decision-makers Generating and Using Health Economics Research to Tackle COVID-19

              Since the beginning of the outbreak, the scientific community has worked around the clock to produce evidence to support decision-makers in all aspects of COVID management. However, health economics research has been largely missing from this growing literature. The C19economics.org platform has been launched to support policymakers (and their advisers) and researchers working on health economics for COVID, with a focus on LMICs.
