What is IDDS?
The International Development Design Summit (IDDS) is an intense, hands-on design experience that brings together people from all walks of life to co-create low cost technologies that improve the livelihoods of people living in poverty. IDDS is part of the International Development Innovation Network (IDIN) program, an effort funded by USAID’s U.S. Global Development Lab. The IDIN program is led by MIT, but includes other academic, institutional, and innovation center partners in the US, Brazil, Ghana, Zambia, Tanzania, Uganda, and Singapore, as well as over 600 former IDDS participants living and working across the globe. IDDS is a collaborative effort organized by local organizers and other IDIN members. Read more about IDDS and IDIN here.
