Welcome to the Monash Centre for
Development Economics and Sustainability

The Centre for Development Economics and Sustainability at Monash University produces high quality research on economic and social problems in the developing world, and environment and sustainability more generally.

The aim of this research is to further our understanding of these problems and how they can be mitigated. Our research, while academically rigorous, aims to be to a large degree policy-relevant and we regularly engage with government departments, development agencies and development NGOs.
