Working with IDG

Our Counterparts and Partners


As part of IDG's mission to improve governance and economic opportunities for citizens in developing countries, IDG works with a broad range of government agencies, research institutions, universities, development partners, and international financial institutions. Our counterparts and partners include government policymakers, elected officials, private-sector actors, civil society leaders, academics, and donor agencies from over 70 countries. Urban staff work with colleagues and local partners in Africa, Asia, Central Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America from our offices in Washington, DC. 

Our Sponsors 

The Urban Institute's international activity is supported by a variety of public- and private-sector entities, including the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), the World Bank, United Nations Development Programme and UNCDF, national governments, and foundations, as well as other bilateral agencies and international financial institutions.

Contract Modalities

The Urban Institute holds a variety of grant and contract mechanisms that make it simple to access the expertise of our team. For US government entities (such as USAID and MCC), several indefinite quantity contract modalities and the US Government Services Administration schedules are available.
