R4D Celebrates its Fifth Year

13 November, 2012

R4D at Five

On November 13th, we celebrated our five year anniversary with a celebration at R4D headquarters in Washington D.C. In recognition of this exciting milestone for our organization, we are looking back at R4D's impact, publications, and programs.

In our first five years, R4D has focused on accomplishments that advance our mission of unlocking solutions to tough development challenges that are preventing people in low- and middle-income countries from realizing their full potential. 

To learn more about our impact, read our 2012 Progress Report here

Also, a selection is listed below of reports, books, and publications we've produced in our four focus areas --  global health, market dynamics, governance and education.
