IMC

Societies develop by connecting people with each other, with services and with resources in increasingly productive and sustainable ways.

IMC’s mission is to enable the most disadvantaged populations to make these connections so that they can advance, for the benefit of all of us. IMC does this by helping low- and middle-income countries develop the ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ infrastructure that people need to connect. This can range from creating ‘hard’ infrastructure such as transport networks that link impoverished farmers to markets or communities to health facilities, through to developing ‘soft’ infrastructure such as the institutions, systems and skills required to deliver public services to the disadvantaged or to support inclusive economic growth.
