Mission-Driven: We focus on promoting inclusive economic growth in developing countries, to alleviate world poverty. Every person who works for IDG is committed to this core organizational mission.

Speak Truth to Power: For us, speaking truth to power means evidence-based development. We use analytical methods and evidence to figure out the truth of what is working and what is not working to advance development objectives, and then we plainly speak that truth to everyone—to our beneficiaries, to our clients, and to the general public.
