Our approach to partnerships
Partnerships are fundamental to our work. Our partners value our academic rigour, global reach and engaged approach. Together we deliver high-quality research and mobilise evidence for impact worldwide.
Who we work with
We work with governments, academia, civil society organisations, citizens, donors, business and other actors that share common goals and values. Only through collaborations across disciplines, sectors and countries can we generate the types of evidence and policy solutions necessary to tackle challenges that affect the lives of millions of people across the world and accelerate progress towards the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development (Global Goals).
Our partnership values in practice
Our values are core to who we are, what we stand for and how we behave. They apply equally to how members (staff, students, alumni and associates) work together within the Institute and how IDS works with partners and sub-contractors. We strive to be respectful, inclusive, resourceful and excellent.
