The IPC-IG is a global forum for South-South dialogue on innovative development policies guided by a partnership agreement between UNDP and the Government of Brazil, represented by the Secretariat of Strategic Affairs of the Presidency of the Republic (SAE/PR). The IPC-IG’s mandate is to promote the production and dissemination of studies and policy recommendations, the exchange of best practices in development initiatives and the expansion of South–South cooperation.
The leading voice for inclusive growth in and for the South
The IPC-IG was founded in 2004. Since 2013, the UNDP Brazil Country Office has offered operational support and its Resident Representative is the director of the Centre. The Brazilian Institute of Applied Economic Research (IPEA) hosts the IPC-IG and contributes substantively through the participation of its body of researchers in the Centre’s activities.
The IPC-IG has disseminated over 1.000 policy-oriented research publications that provide useful insights into various issues related to inclusive growth strategies.
It has established and consolidated a global network that covers 189 countries. Its reach extends to over 37,000 selected stakeholders working in related areas at government level, in academia, the United Nations and civil society organisations. The IPC-IG’s training sessions, workshops and study tours have already involved more than 7,000 representatives from around 50 developing countries.
The IPC-IG website receives a monthly average of over 160,000 visits, with visitors from over 170 countries.
