The Wolfensohn Center for Development at Brookings seeks effective solutions to key development challenges in order to create a more prosperous and stable world. The center conducts rigorous, independent research on how development interventions can be successfully implemented, scaled up and sustained.
It strives to bridge the gap between development theorists and practitioners and works in partnership with others, especially partners in developing countries, to promote local ownership and capacity and to ensure lasting development impact. James D. Wolfensohn, former president of the World Bank and a member of the Brookings Board of Trustees, founded the Center in July 2006.
