The Centre for Development and Enterprise (CDE) is an independent policy research and advocacy organisation. It is one of South Africa's leading development think tanks, focusing on critical national development issues and their relationship to economic growth and democratic consolidation. Through examining South African realities and international experience, CDE formulates practical policy proposals outlining ways in which South Africa can tackle major social and economic challenges. CDE has a special focus on the role of business and markets in development.

Established in 1995 with core funding from South African businesses, CDE has rapidly gained recognition as an authoritative voice in economic and social development policy, and is now 'read and heard' at the very highest levels of government, including the cabinet.

CDE formulates its proposals after careful study of international best practice and South African realities. While its work reflects rigorous academic standards, it seeks to turn its research into positive and practical policy recommendations that are easily accessible to politicians and other decision-makers.

CDE has a small full-time staff and a core of senior consultants, and makes extensive use of local and international academics and other experts. Research produced for CDE is distilled into summary reports containing policy proposals that are intensively tested before different audiences prior to being released.

CDE runs an active outreach programme, aimed at disseminating its research and proposals as efficiently as possible. Stakeholders are commonly brought together to debate research findings and policy proposals, and invited to take action.
