Environment and Development

Research on environment and development is rooted in critical analysis of the relationship of rural livelihoods with sustainable use and conservation of natural resources in developing countries.

This is located within a broader analysis of the political economy of management of natural resources in developing countries.

We are committed to reducing our environmental impact, and are involved in the Green Impact Scheme at The University of Manchester.

 Three of the many ways we work towards reducing our carbon footprint:

  • use sustainable local food in our catering at events and meetings
  • reuse/recycle as much as possible
  • encourage sustainable travel
