How IDRC-funded research has improved lives in the developing world
Positive and lasting change in the developing world requires long-term commitment. Since 1970, IDRC has funded research with that exact goal in mind. Now, to mark our 40th anniversary, we look back at some examples of how the research we have funded has had lasting impacts.
Each month in 2010, we featured a new Lasting Impacts international development theme. Each presents IDRC-funded research projects that demonstrate the importance of research for effective and sustained development and showcase IDRC as an integral part of Canada's foreign affairs family.
