Media Advisory - From climate change, to food security, to global finance: International Development Expert Alert

OTTAWA, Nov. 2, 2011 /CNW/ - From climate change, to food security, to global finance, Canada's International Development Research Centre (IDRC) has more than 100 staff experts available to speak to the media on some of the world's most pressing development challenges.

To achieve self-reliance, poor communities need answers to questions like: How can we grow more and healthier food? Protect our health? Create jobs? IDRC supports research in developing countries to answer these questions. IDRC also encourages sharing this knowledge with policymakers, other researchers, and communities around the world. The result is innovative, lasting local solutions that aim to bring choice and change to those who need it most.

The IDRC Experts Directory is designed to help journalists connect with these experts, who are based at IDRC's head office in Ottawa, Canada, and at regional offices in Montevideo, Uruguay; Dakar, Senegal; Nairobi, Kenya; Cairo, Egypt; New Delhi, India; and Singapore. IDRC can also help journalists access extensive networks of researchers and decision-makers around the globe.

Access the IDRC Experts Directory free on-line at www.idrc.ca/idrcexperts.

Journalists and the public can join in the conversation through Twitter (#IDRC) and Facebook.
