Welcome to CSDLP

The Centre for Sustainable Development Law and Policy aims at advancing sustainable development through research across intersecting thematic areas.

Our mission is to support the achievement of sustainable development in all its dimensions: environmental, economic, and social. The Sustainable Development Goals serve as cross-cutting themes in our research projects, policy work and collaborative initiatives, including education and training, gender, health and wellbeing. We work on various projects, with countries and academic partners across the globe.
