IDS Knowledge Services seek to provide a bridge between research, policy and practice in international development by delivering and supporting a range of information-sharing services, and strengthening the ability of others to do the same.
With over forty years experience in this field, we aim to help people understand and make sense of the complexities and realities of poverty and injustice, emphasizing the importance of using diverse and credible information in decision-making processes. We work closely with other knowledge brokers across the world, and with partners in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.
Our flagship services include the British Library of Development Studies, Europe's largest research collection on economic and social change in developing countries; BRIDGE, which supports gender advocacy and mainstreaming with print and online information services; and Eldis, a web portal sharing a broad range of publications on development research, policy and practice.
This widget enables the access to relevant contents from the IDS Open API which entails information from both BRIDGE and Eldis web portals.
