The Consensus for Development Reform (CDR) is a platform of leading conservative and private sector voices for more effective U.S. global leadership through reforming and improving our approach to global development.

CDR is founded on the belief that America is a force for good in the world, and that reformed, more innovative, and more accountable foreign assistance will yield better results for those we help and will more faithfully serve U.S. national interests.

CDR’s participants are a select group of conservative thought-leaders and policy experts, including former members of Congress, senior Administration officials, and private sector leaders who share a common commitment to U.S. leadership in global development and improvement of our foreign assistance’s effectiveness.

Consensus for Development Reform Policy Recommendations

CDR has developed four principals to guide the incoming Administration and Congress on U.S. global development strategy: reward effectiveness; promote economic growth; advance self-sufficiency and democratic governance; and maintain our humanitarian leadership. For an in-depth description of each principal and details recommendations, please see HERE.
