The IGC’s India-Central and India-Bihar country programmes merged under a partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in 2017 to engage with government, research institutes, and other institutions in Bihar to build a strong, sustainable ecosystem of research and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) in the state and throughout the country, and create the necessary local institutional capacity.
The IGC’s two India programmes were launched in 2009, following extensive consultations with Indian policymakers, academic experts, media and civil society representatives. IGC India believes that local solutions are at the heart of the most effective policies; therefore, improving the quality and quantity of evidence available is crucial for ensuring policymakers and practitioners look towards evidence and evaluation when designing and implementing both policies and programmes.
Additionally, Ideas for India (I4I) was launched in 2012 as a common platform for exchanging and disseminating ideas effectively and to promote the creation of more evidence-based policy. By serving as an ideologically neutral space for social scientists and development practitioners, Ideas for India makes policy discussions more accessible to specialists and non-specialists interested in the issues of growth and development in India.
Please note that our India country programme is currently closed. We have a small editorial team who run our Ideas for India platform from New Delhi.
