Global Development Network launches revamped website

The Global Development Network has launched a revamped website.  GDN is a global network of research and policy institutes that work on facilitating and applying research to policy development and practice.

The new website links to a range of online services including free access journals for Southern researchers, details of funding opportunities, and access to the World Development Indicators (WDI) database, one of most extensive collections of data about development available.

A  Knowledge Base includes details of nearly 8000 development researchers worldwide, including information on their research specializations, contact details, and links to online research produced, as well as researchers’ cvs and photos. An organizations database lists details of nearly 4000 policy research centers worldwide. In addition, over 15,000 recent research papers are available free online, focusing in development research produced in developing countries. Recently added content from these databases are available as RSS feeds.

I found the website a bit slow to load, but it is a treasure trove of information for people working in the development policy area.
