UNDP International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG)
Established in 2004 in Brasilia, the International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG, formerly known as the International Poverty Centre) is a global centre for applied research and training on development policy. It is based on a partnership between the United Nations Development Programme and the Government of Brazil. It facilitates South-South learning in development solutions by fostering policy dialogue, carrying out policy-oriented research, as well as conducting training and evaluation.
