IPA began implementing research in Colombia in 2010, and in response to growing demand from researchers and local partners, we opened a country office in 2014. IPA Colombia has completed over thirty research projects in the country, and we are currently implementing more than a dozen in the fields of early childhood development, education, gender-based violence, social protection, financial inclusion, small and medium enterprises, governance, crime and violence, and peace and recovery.


The Colombia team has extensive experience collaborating with international and locally-based academics and public-, private-, and NGO-sector partners to co-create and implement research projects aimed at generating evidence to inform the design of better programs, policies, and products.

In accordance with Colombian law, the following documents are posted publicly and demonstrate IPA Colombia's registration as a non-profit entity in Colombia: 01 - Informe de Gestión 2021, 02 - EEFF 2021-202003 - Renta IPA 202104 - Certificado de Solicitud y Registro al Régimen Tributario Especial 2022, 05 - Certificado de Cámara de Comercio 2022, and 06 - Informe de Gestión - Relación de Proyectos.

In May 2022, the IPA Colombia office held a webinar (in Spanish) to provide an overview of the Colombia country office and additional information about IPA's recruiting process for entry-level applicants to IPA job opportunities. You can watch the video recording below:
