Our strategic plan

Knowledge. Innovation. Solutions.

IDRC’s strategic plan, Investing in Solutions, will guide our efforts from 2015 to 2020. Building on more than four decades of experience, the plan reaffirms our vision to produce knowledge, support innovation, and generate solutions to improve lives and livelihoods in the developing world.

We will accomplish this vision through three strategic objectives:

  • Invest in knowledge and innovation for large-scale positive change
  • Build the leaders for today and tomorrow
  • Be the partner of choice for greater impact

The research we support will continue to improve food security, maternal and child health, employment for women and youth, and technology and innovation throughout the developing world. Our programming helps Canada meet its foreign affairs and development goals.
