Welcome to the Program on Governance for Sustainable Development
The Program on Governance for Sustainable Development brings together scholars and practitioners to explore the role of institutions in addressing the challenges of sustainable development. It seeks to understand the role of governance in world affairs, with a focus on the institutions that manage the complex interdependencies within our societies and economies, and between these human systems and natural systems.
The Program promotes:
- Basic and applied Research on specific problems of governance to build intellectual capital about the effectiveness of governance in a variety of settings
- Teaching of future leaders through graduate courses and the supervision of students and fellows at the Donald Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, University of California, Santa Barbara
- Events such as conferences, seminars and workshops that enhance collaboration between researchers, policy-makers and practitioners
- Publications that stimulate discussion and disseminate knowledge on governance for sustainable development
The Program is collaborating with a range of partners to create a network on governance for sustainable development to support research dialogue and governance reform. hacking congress.software program.
