Description

Founded in March 2017, the Center for International Knowledge on Development (CIKD) was first announced in President Xi Jinping’s speech at the 2015 UN Sustainable Development Summit calling for enhanced research and communication with other countries on development theories and practices suitable to their respective national conditions. As an independent institution affiliated with the Development Research Center of the State Council (DRC), CIKD is mandated to pool Chinese and international resources to advance development studies, undertake research on development theories and practices, and promote research and knowledge-sharing on international development issues, including the implementation of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. CIKD is officially launched in August 2017.
