The Data Initiative is a tool for researchers from low and middle income countries that serves to provide access to data to support their analysis of socioeconomic research. The Data Initiative is supported by the World Bank's Development Data Group.
GDN's annual Global Development Conference is a conference open to GDN member researchers, research institutions, and practitioners worldwide. Apart from the plenary sessions, parallel sessions, workshops, final selection and presentation of the Global Development Awards winners are held.
Some of GDN's regional networks hold networks meetings to present and share recent research results and to encourage dialogue between research and practitioners.
