The Development Research Foundation strives to be a leading economic research institution in India with a focus on policy issues. India’s challenges are unique and so must be the proposed solutions. To arrive at these solutions, our researchers aim to combine international best practices with a nuanced understanding of local contexts. DRF will provide a collaborative platform for social scientists, technologists, activists, data scientists, academics and other stakeholders to test creative ideas. We aim to continuously innovate and engage with other disciplines to push the development agenda forward.
