Listening to Leaders

360 degree feedback on development priorities, progress and performance

AidData's Listening to Leaders program collects 360 degree feedback on development priorities, progress, and performance from the perspective of leaders in low- and middle-income countries. We research convergence and divergence in priorities; barriers and opportunities to advance reforms; performance of development partners; and evidence-informed policymaking.
