Cayenne, French Guyana

This organisation may not be a traditional think tank. We have included it in this list as we deem it to be a 'boundary' organisation – in other words, it might have some qualities or characterstics of a think tank.

The Research Institute for Development (IRD) is a French research organization. Favoring interdisciplinarity, the IRD has focused its research, for more than 65 years, on the relationships between man and his environment in Africa, the Mediterranean, Latin America, Asia and in the French tropical Overseas. Its research, training and innovation activities aim to contribute to the social, economic and cultural development of the countries of the South.
