Who we are

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, emphasising 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:
