IPD's capacity-building activities are designed to assist governments and their citizens acquire the ability and skills to engage in substantive internal policy debates and deal effectively with the international financial community.

Our Journalism Program helps strengthen journalists' economic literacy and equip them to report and write about the major economic issues confronting developing economies such as banking reform, privatization, trade agreements, financial crises, labor issues and globalization and the role of international financial institutions. Journalists learn from experts in these areas, including academics, World Bank officials and NGO representatives. They also receive training in critical and analytic journalism, reporting fairly on diverse views, investigative reporting, and computer research skills from experienced journalists.
