The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) funds research in developing countries to promote growth, reduce poverty, and drive large-scale positive change.


Priorities as a partner of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data

The IDRC commits to contributing to the development of the Global Partnership's longer-term plan, which may result in opportunities and collaborations with the Centre of Excellence for Civil Registration and Vital Statistics, hosted at IDRC.

The Centre will support developing countries' efforts to strengthen their CRVS systems through the gathering and sharing evidence, technical expertise, and guidelines from around the world on CRVS.

The Centre will be a key resource for partners around the world to solve the data gaps on this specific priority SDGs (and working in tandem with the CRVS trust fund). Collaboration with the CRVS could build capacities, catalyze investments, and the spread of good practices to harness the data revolution for sustainable development.
