Sub-Saharan Africa
IDRC's Regional Office for Sub-Saharan Africa is located in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi. Our team works with researchers and research institutions to support their efforts in identifying local solutions to local development challenges.
 
From information and communication technologies to peacebuilding, urban agriculture, health, trade, and biodiversity, the people and organizations we fund make a difference in the lives of millions.
 
IDRC's research program in Sub-Saharan Africa centres on three strands:
  • agriculture and environment
  • social and economic policy
  • science and innovation
In focusing on these areas, our team pays close attention to governance, translating research results into policy decisions, and gender issues in development.
