Development Initiatives

Development Initiatives (DI) is an independent international development organisation working on the use of data to drive poverty eradication and sustainable development. Our vision is a world without poverty that invests in human security and where everyone shares the benefits of opportunity and growth. We work to ensure that decisions about the allocation of finance and resources result in an end to poverty, increase the resilience of the world’s most vulnerable people, and ensure no one is left behind. We want these decisions to be underpinned by good quality, transparent data and evidence on poverty and resources, and lead to increased accountability and sustainable long-term outcomes. DI was established in 1993, and since then our partnerships across the world have enabled us to expand from a small organisation in south-west England to a staff of over 70 people working in Brazil, Kenya, Nepal, Uganda, the UK and the US.
