Sustainable and inclusive Development

The research of the CIE focuses on multi-dimensional challenges of sustainable and inclusive development. Within the areas of environmental development, population, and health economics we address topics such as inequality, climate change, environmental degradation and socially irresponsible business practices threaten to interfere with human development and undermine the basic human rights of entire populations.
