Joining forces with other donors

Most of IDRC’s funding comes from the Government of Canada. During 2009–2010 Parliamentary appropriations totalled $174 million, representing 81% of IDRC’s budget.

IDRC also joins forces with other funders to increase the resources going toward research that addresses the needs of developing countries. At March 31, 2010, we were involved with 20 partners in 50 multi-year donor agreements worth $322.1 million.  These donor partners include bilateral aid agencies, multilateral organizations, foundations, and the private sector. Since 1979, IDRC has entered into agreements with more than 175 donors.

We also join with other Canadian agencies to create opportunities for researchers from Canada and the developing world to collaborate on research of common interest. These programs include:
And IDRC collaborates with the three Canadian granting councils — the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council — in the International Research Initiative on Adaptation to Climate Change.
