We engage in research focused on understanding and finding solutions to poverty issues around the world. Our projects produce working papers and datasets and use a cluster framework. Clusters can either be built around sectors or geographic areas. Currently, our clusters are organized as follows:

Geographic Clusters

Sectoral Clusters

  • Research Methods

Additionally, GPRL is engaging in COVID-related research aimed at slowing the already devastating spread of COVID-19 and ameliorating the pandemic’s socioeconomic consequences.
