Mission & Disaster Reduction Profile

IDS is a leading global organization for research, teaching and communications on international development. Our vision is a world in which poverty does not exist, social justice prevails and economic growth is focused on improving human wellbeing. We believe that research knowledge can drive the change that must happen in order for this vision to be realised. The research programmes are organized in six closely linked multidisciplinary teams: globalization; governance; knowledge, technology and society; participation, power and social change; vulnerability and poverty reduction; climate change.
