GDRC

Kobe, Japan

The Global Development Research Center (GDRC) is an independent nonprofit think tank that carries out initiatives in education, research and practice, in the spheres of environment, urban, community and information, and at scales that are effective. GDRC's vision is to contribute to broad-based global development by facilitating the creation and use of knowledge. It aims to consolidate disparate issues, themes and topics into one umbrella to highlight their interconnectedness and interdisciplinary nature. GDRC targets the micro scale - at the level of the man-on-the-street, where most everyday decisions are taken.
