Local Research for Better Lives
The Institutional Research Capacity Building (IRCB) program is a component of the Global Development Network (GDN) within the framework of the ‘Research in the South’ or ‘Recherche au Sud’ Program, particularly in Francophone Africa
Keeping with GDN’s inclination towards the innovative and practical, the IRCB program relies on inclusive and horizontal approaches.
The IRCB program was launched in 2022 and is currently in the implementation phase of the five projects in four countries
IRCB currently has five grantees whose institutional capacity building projects have taken off in 2023.
The IRCB program is managed by the Global Development Network and funded by the French Development Agency (AFD).
