IDAS strives to stay at the cutting edge of development in Africa. We are known for Quality, Innovation and Impact. Our work generates knowledge that we capture in the Development in Practice: Impact Papers series – designed to show best practice and forward thinking based on our extensive experience. The series is based on the experience of IDAS Advisers, and covers general development issues, fragile states, private sector development, governance, organisational and performance experiences and adaptation to climate change. The papers are available for download here.
