Donald J. Trump is President-elect of the United States and this is likely to have a considerable impact on US foreign and international development policy. Following the election result, ODI convenes an expert international panel to explore the major global challenges facing the incoming administration and what action it should take.

Which are likely to take priority for the new leader? How have countries around the world responded to the election result, and what are the implications for global relations, including efforts to make progress on climate change, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and global peace and security?
