Like International Center for Policy and Conflict (ICPC), the institute is a constituent of Africa Open Democracy Foundation (AODF) and exists to stimulate and support informed policy dialogue and develop human capacities. Central to its model of engagement with policy stakeholders is research communications.
The institute synthesizes research findings to draw out practical applications that can advance national and regional people-centered development programs. Information is shared using innovative, people centered communication processes. Written material is published and disseminated in user friendly methods.
ARDI adds value by improving information flows and policy dialogue. Our model delivers a long overdue, inclusive forum for public debate and engagement in national and regional development matters.
ARDI seeks support for its research programs and activities from foundations, multilateral organizations and donor institutions. It also welcomes donations from groups and individuals.
