AU Watch

Our Resource Centre

AU Watch Research Centre  funds research in developing countries to promote growth, reduce poverty, and drive large-scale positive change.

A Crown corporation, we support leading thinkers who advance knowledge and solve practical development problems. We provide the resources, advice, and training they need to implement and share their solutions with those who need them most. In short, AU Watch increases opportunities — and makes a real difference in people’s lives.

Working with our development partners, we multiply the impact of our investment and bring innovations to more people in more countries around the world. We offer fellowships and awards to nurture a new generation of development leaders.

Our head office is located in Banjul, The Gambia.

AU Watch is governed by a board of up to 14 governors, whose chairperson reports to Parliament through the Minister of International Development.
