Centre Management

Senior staff members comprise IDRC’s Centre Management Committee. Committee members include our four regional office directors and the directors from our main program focus areas.  

The Committee works with the president to support research for development — providing advice and guidance on corporate objectives, policies, and programs. The Committee communicates our interests and values in Canada, and internationally.
