Environment for Development (EfD) is a global network of research centers established in 2007 with the purpose of increasing the use of environmental economics to reduce poverty and increase sustainability in the Global South.
EfD contributes to solve the world’s most pressing environmental and development challenges through policy-relevant research, capacity development and policy engagement. EfD’s research addresses the most important sustainability challenges. These are identified in a close dialogue with decision makers at our centers and through continuous learning between countries. EfD works actively to reach policy makers and other stakeholders with the research results and contributes thereby to policy making that promotes poverty alleviation, increased equality and sustainable development.
