Institute for Global Sustainable Development

The Institute for Global Sustainable Development is a recently established research initiative at the University of Warwick with the mission of being a hub for transdisciplinary research on global sustainable development, i.e. research that crosses disciplinary borders and includes non-academic stakeholder communities to achieve effective sustainable development impact.

The Institute will facilitate connections between researchers from a wide spectrum of disciplines in social science, humanities and natural sciences to catalyse social, economic and environmental change across the world, acting as a focal point for world-class research with transformative impact.

Professor João Porto de Albuquerque is Director of the Institute of Global Sustainable Development.
