Programs

Guided by IDRC’s Strategy 2030, we fund research projects across five interconnected programs, featured below, to help address the world’s most persistent and threatening challenges.

At the same time, climate change and inequalities, exacerbated by  the COVID-19 pandemic, have had disastrous effects and undermined progress towards tackling the world’s most pressing challenges.

We believe that our five chosen program areas will have the greatest possible impact on reducing the effects of climate change and addressing inequality, while helping to reach the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
