".... provide development agencies, and the governments with whom they work, with solutions to some of the most complex and intractable international development problems.

Recent funders include DFID, the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, the EC, Irish Aid, Danida, SIDA, FINNIDA, SECO, FAO, UNICEF and UNDP."
