About us

We want the resources invested in international development to have the greatest possible impact on people’s lives. We provide the insight and ideas to ensure that it does.

about itad

We work to make international development as effective as possible and ultimately to improve more lives. We have done so since 1984. This means giving organisations the information and insight they need to make development work smarter and produce better results. It is complex, meticulous monitoring and evaluation work involving many different stakeholders across many different scenarios –  exactly the kind of challenge on which we thrive. 

How we work

There is no single formula for achieving development effectiveness. Every context presents its own unique challenges. We bring to each project an in-depth understanding of the key issues and considerations in development effectiveness. We also bring a readiness to adapt our approach and find a new way of working. This means a solution informed by the results of many different projects yet also entirely appropriate to the project in hand.
