The International Design Alliance (IDA)
The International Design Alliance (IDA) was a strategic venture between the international organisations representing design. The alliance was created by founding partners Icsid and Icograda and ratified by their respective General Assemblies in September 2003. In September 2008, the IDA welcomed the International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers (IFI) to the alliance as the third partner.

The alliance was terminated in November 2013.
