Centre for Resilience and Sustainable Development

A transdisciplinary action-research centre in applied resilience science
 

The overarching mission of the Centre for Resilience and Sustainable Development is to offer valuable and actionable insights that will help ethical leaders to cope and thrive; and to drive policy innovations and institutional development in a changing world. Resiliency and sustainability depend on good leadership, empowered people, the wise use of natural resources and the profitable activities of ethical companies to bridge the gaps between rich and poor, so as to enhance prosperity for all.

In addition to provide political economic analysis and laboratory resources for policy system and decision making, the intent of the centre is to provide opportunities for scientists, policy makers, business, and public leaders, to share their research interest and activities, to learn new methods in the area of our core research:


From the perspective of trust and cooperation as key to solving global challenges, we break down the silos between sectors, harness new theories of change and consider legacy effects using evidence, so that new systems can be introduced. By blending system dynamics with political and economic analysis and rigorously developed business cases, we help achieve lasting change. We have helped over 1,000 leaders from the public and private sector from over 107 countries through our cutting-edge action-research and capacity building efforts.

From the perspective of trust and cooperation as key to solving global challenges, we break down the silos between sectors, harness new theories of change and consider legacy effects using evidence, so that new systems can be introduced. By blending system dynamics with political and economic analysis and rigorously developed business cases, we help achieve lasting change. We have helped over 160 companies and over 20 countries through our cutting-edge research and capacity building efforts.

 

Our research enables:

  • Governments and civil sector foster innovation and enterprise to deliver social and economic benefits consistently.
  • Companies to develop life-changing products and services, build better businesses, create meaningful jobs, and improve the environment for the future collectively.
  • Decision makers to reinvent policies and practices to facilitate their institutions to move to higher sustainable and productive activities.
