The Centre for Development Finance (CDF) is one of three research centres at the Institute for Financial Management and Research (IFMR). IFMR was registered under the Societies Act 1860 on October 6, 1970 and was established to undertake research in the broad area of finance and to publish its findings so as to help policymakers. It is a Social Science Research Organisation that is approved by the Department for Science and Technology, Government of India.
We undertake policy oriented research and advisory engagements to improve the delivery of public infrastructure and services, particularly in the areas of water and sanitation. We recently developed a guidance paper on performance agreements for sustainable urban sanitation, funded by the Gates Foundation.
