Centre Management Committee

The Centre Management Committee is composed of IDRC’s senior staff members, including our three vice-presidents, the directors of our five regional offices and the directors from our main divisions and program focus areas.

The committee works with IDRC’s president to support research for development — providing advice and guidance on corporate objectives, policies and programs.

The committee communicates our interests and values in Canada, and internationally, and takes care of the Centre’s day-to-day activities. It works closely with IDRC’s Board of Governors to fulfill the Centre’s strategic direction, as set by the Board.
