Living democracies are sustained by people's power. In turn the enhancement
of the power of the citizens is the core mission of the democratic systems. Our
mission at IRDT is to enable people-centric, equitable development at the base
level. Recognising that capacity building of institutions and individuals is as
critical for effective public service as water is for human life, the Institute
strives to achieve comprehensive augmentation of base skills of the human
resource in various sectors & at multiple layers of governance, including
the elected representatives of local self-governments.
