The Reach Project focuses on the delivery of development interventions to those who need them most and who are hardest to reach. It is a research initiative supported by a partnership between the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto and the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth.
The Reach Project is led by Professor Joseph Wong, along with other faculty members from various disciplines at the University of Toronto. The Reach Project team is composed of researchers from across the University. Together, they examine the delivery of social services to those who are hardest to reach in countries around the world.
Through its partnership with the Reach Project and the Munk School of Global Affairs, the Center is committed to advancing actionable insights on programs and policies that successfully reach hard to reach low-income populations to help drive inclusive growth in developing countries.

ONE: REACH IN FRAGILE STATES
Fragile states are where reach is hardest to achieve, and yet, these are precisely where reaching the hardest to reach is imperative to facilitate inclusive growth and development. This session examines what we can learn from the private, public and civil society sectors about how to reach the hardest to each in the context of fragile states.
