Development Management Institute (DMI) was established in 2014 with the support of the Government of Bihar, India, in order to form a High Performing Knowledge Institution, patterned on the founding vision of Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA). IRMA was based on the firm belief that the livelihoods of small producers and marginalized people can be enhanced by organizing them to form participation-based, democratically managed institutions that leverage the strengths of collectives and build enduring partnerships with professionals for reaping the benefits of technology and market integration. The rationale of DMI is best captured in its mission: ‘To empower and usher in participatory governance and management of institutions, enterprises and resources for enhancing livelihoods and generating sustainable development’.

PLAAS does research, policy engagement, teaching and training about the dynamics of chronic poverty and structural inequality in Southern Africa, with a particular emphasis on the key role of restructuring and contesting land holding and agro-food systems in the subcontinent and beyond.

Their mission emphasises the central importance of the agro-food system in creating and perpetuating poverty — and also in eradicating it. For much of their existence, their work has concentrated heavily on issues of production in these systems. But the focus is broadening to consider the upstream and downstream aspects of agro-food commodity chains and systems. Key aspects of social policy affecting the dynamics of poverty and inequality in southern and South Africa are also being taken up in their work.
