At IDRC, we collaborate with accomplished scholars and nurture a new generation of researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to improve lives in developing countries. Together, we’re working toward better policies, cleaner environments, improved nutrition, increased incomes, and greater health.
 
We firmly believe in fostering research and innovation that finds lasting solutions to local problems. Our four regional offices located throughout the developing world do just that — in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Middle East.
 
By living and working closest to the communities they serve, our regional office staff serves as our “eyes and ears” on the ground. The relationships they build offer valuable insight into local challenges and realities. This knowledge helps us establish IDRC’s programming priorities both regionally and globally.
 
Together, we’re working to make a difference.
