BRIDGE is a globally networked research and knowledge sharing programme located within the IDS Gender and Sexuality cluster.
We are part of a global movement whose vision is a world where gender equality, dignity and social justice prevail, where poverty is eliminated and where human rights – including women’s rights – are realised. We believe that we play an important role in realising this vision by generating and sharing diverse, accessible gender information, and by stimulating collaborative, groundbreaking thinking on key issues related to gender and development. We also support the exchange of experience and ideas of how to put this thinking into practice in ways that will make a difference.
Visit the BRIDGE website to learn more and access resources, including Cutting Edge Packs on food security, social movements, climate change and indicators.
