Projects designed to confront development challenges
 
IDRC-funded researchers in Sub-Saharan Africa conduct projects that provide important insights into the complex issues facing the region. Our support builds local knowledge to inform policies and strategies related to climate change, hunger, and public health.
 
From fighting malaria and other infectious diseases to improving food security and stimulating livelihoods, IDRC’s assistance is yielding results. Our grantees also examine women’s access to technology. They’re finding ways for government and health providers to use low-cost technologies to provide services to the public.
 
And there’s much more. You can search their past and present projects by program and by theme.
