G-LIST (Global Lives improved and saved tool)
The G-LIST project models the impact of government revenue on outcomes including maternal and child mortality in order to give a sense of the potential if leakages, such as tax avoidance, from government revenues, are curtailed.

This project evolved from previous work done with colleagues at St Andrews, University of Malawi, John Hopkins and UNU WIDER. Colleagues from the University of Oxford, the School of Business at the University of Leicester and the Overseas Development Institute collaborated on this project.
Evidence of need
While it is known that increased income is associated with improved outcomes in terms of health and welfare, the relationship between government revenue and outcomes has not been clearly established.
This work will contribute to policy decisions and advocacy.
The modelling is complete and the work is under consideration for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
The use of the model to support environmental, social and governance decisions by investors, policymakers and advocates.
To use the G-LIST to predict the potential reduction in mortality if leaks from government revenue are curtailed in countries with high levels of mortality.
Finding colleagues with shared interests and skills.
A forum where partnerships could post their 'wish lists' to facilitate collaboration.
