IDPC (Incubation of Development Project Creators) is a youth­led organization established in 2008 to create a platform for youth who are willing to take a lead in the field of international development. IDPC is run mainly by graduate and undergraduate students and young professionals (19 in total). We have a branch both in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan.

Since founded in 2008, IDPC has held “International Development Planning Contest” every year, in which students and young professionals selected from around Japan create cutting­edge projects on developmental issues in the designated countries.

These opportunities have been provided for more than 500 youths in Japan and with the presences of over 150 professionals which includes Former Regional Director of Asia, UNWFP, Director, UNDP Representative Office in Japan, and Director, Asian Development Bank Tokyo, and a number of senior officers of other UN organizations, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan, Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), etc.

Prof. Kurasawa received the PhD from PhD, Cornell University and her MA and BA from The University of Tokyo.

At Keio University, she also teaches a course on "Effect of Development Policy and Social Change at Grass-roots Community in Indonesia" where she describes social changes brought by rapid and heavy development policy, taking the case of Indonesia. Her analysis is based on field research in two sites (one urban and another rural) where she has been watching over(?) since 1996. Her course focuses on changes on such aspects such as human relations within a community, flow of information and changes in communication mode, religious piety, life-style etc.


Message from president(IDPC)

Yusuke Mizumoto

Today, our world is facing many difficulties, like environmental issues, poverty issues and so on. It’s us who take responsibility for these issues. We should urgently think about problems around the world on our own and take action to create a sustainable world.

Incubation of Development Project Creators (IDPC) is a youth-led organization established in Japan in 2008, which provides youths an opportunity to discuss, share opinion in the field of international development.

Why not join IDPC? Let’ design our future!!
