Where We Work

CIPE supports democratic and economic development in the world’s most challenging places.

From Ethiopia to Papua New Guinea, Moldova to Peru, and Yemen to Cambodia, CIPE is currently carrying out over 130 projects in more than 100 countries.

Long after a country or a region disappears from the headlines, important work remains to prevent progress from being overturned. CIPE supports its local partners in leading sustainable development initiatives and assists key reformers in places where progress has yet to take hold. CIPE and its partners apply lessons learned across regions, spreading innovative approaches in countries at various stages of democratic and economic reform.


Through dialogue, collective action, and collaboration with government and civil society, the private sector is helping to build the institutions that will allow democracy to flourish in Africa.

Asia & the Pacific

In Asia and the Pacific, CIPE works to promote democratic societies and private sector-led economies, to strengthen civil society, and to cultivate public demand for good governance and political accountability.

Europe & Eurasia

The Europe and Eurasia Department at CIPE assists, enables, and supports partners to engage in public-private dialogue and cooperation among the private sector, government, and civil society.

Global Programs

CIPE’s Global programs help private sector bolster public confidence in the democratic and market institutions by reaffirming fundamental values, strengthening mechanisms of transparency and integrity, connecting networks of reformers, and exploring innovative responses to new challenges.

Latin America & Caribbean

CIPE’s programs in Latin America and the Caribbean focus on mobilizing the private sector to strengthen democratic institutions and address key public policy issues related to corruption, citizen insecurity, and lack of economic opportunities.

Middle East & North Africa

The hope and promise of the Arab Spring uprisings have given way to resurgent authoritarianism and violent conflict. Weak governance and inadequate economic opportunities fuel dissatisfaction, stoke unrest and add to the appeal of extremism.
