This initiative partners with Canada’s science granting councils to support joint research by Canadian and Southern scientists in areas of shared interest, such as climate change and infectious disease.
This program explores the positive and negative impacts of widespread access to mobile telephones and the Internet in developing countries. I&N works to promote positive social and economic change, particularly in the areas of creative industries, governance, learning, and science.
IID aims to better under understand how innovation in the informal sector can improve livelihoods and contribute to inclusive development, with a particular focus on women and groups that connect informal and formal sectors.
