International Development

Expertise

JBS has been addressing the goals of international development— prosperity, equity, good health, freedom, and dignity for all—for more than 20 years, in over 100 countries, for federal agencies, foreign governments, and NGOs.

Our research and evaluations provide nuanced, evidence-based understanding that donors and stakeholders need. JBS educators, economists, and development specialists bring expertise in program evaluation and design in many international contexts. We’ve evaluated, designed, or supported programs that run the gamut from a youth workforce development project in Liberia to groundbreaking research on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in Eastern Europe to coordinating a multinational effort to use mobile technology in education world wide. 

With unmatched experience and deep technical knowledge, JBS international development experts join partners and clients in finding contextualized, sustainable, and practical solutions that help people around the world have a real chance at living fuller, longer lives.
