The Indo-Dutch Programme on Alternatives in Development (IDPAD) promotes
social science research that is of relevance to development in India.
With a view to increase relevance and utilisation of research the
programme stimulates interaction between researchers and users of
research, including policy makers from government and NGO's. 

IDPAD grew out of intensifying contacts and co-operation between Indian
en Dutch social scientists, inspired by the need to explore
'alternatives in development'. 

The programme was formally launched in 1980 and four phases of research
have been implemented since. A fifth phase will start in July 2002.
IDPAD favours collaboration between researchers and most of IDPAD's
activities are carried out by researchers in India and in The
Netherlands working together. 

IDPAD's main activities are the promotion and funding of research
projects, seminars and exchange visits. In addition, the programme
provides funding for dissemination of research results, and publishes
working papers and a Newsletter. IDPAD encourages female and young
scholars to participate in the programme. 

IDPAD is jointly implemented by the Indian Council of Social Science
Research (ICSSR) in New Delhi, and The Netherlands Foundation for the
Advancement of Tropical Research (WOTRO) in The Hague. Decision making
authority rests with the Joint Committee, consisting of members from
both India and The Netherlands. The programme is financed by the Dutch
government and the government of India.
