The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) is a public corporation created in 1970 to help developing countries find long-term solutions to the social, economic, and environmental problems they face. IDRC's architects believed that the powers of science and technology could be harnessed to promote economic growth and development in the South. They envisioned an organization that would follow the lead established by Southerners themselves. The result was the first international organization to focus on knowledge gained through research as a means for empowering the people of the South.
