ODI Annual Report 2011-2012: impact and priorities

Research reports

It’s been an extraordinary year in international development. The context has been changing dramatically as the geopolitical map shifts, intra-country inequality and insecurity grow, and humanitarian situations worsen across the world. 

In this changing context, more than ever the world needs original thinking, to work towards a resolution of the enduring challenges that face the world’s 1.5 billion who still live in extreme poverty.

As the UK’s leading think tank on international development and humanitarian issues, the Overseas Development Institute pioneers innovative research and policy-focused debate on the key development issues of the day.

We stand at the very forefront of global thinking. And as innovators we continue to evolve. The past year has been one of  growth and change, with the launch of a new strategic framework ensuring our work stays relevant and innovative. We have also refreshed our brand with a dynamic new look to reflect the evolution of the Institute.

The 2011-2012 Annual Report explores this evolution, highlighting the best of work from the past year and revealing our plans for the year ahead.

We welcome your feedback on our new look. Let us know what you think.
