Tools and Training
IDRC works with developing-country researchers and institutions to build local capacity through funding, knowledge-sharing, and training.
From time to time, we produce manuals, videos, and links aimed at increasing the skills of grantees and researchers working in the field. We also have toolkits that offer step-by-step guidance on issues such as how to communicate research results. You’ll find everything right here
