Welcome to the Centre for Development Economics and Sustainability.
The Centre for Development Economics and Sustainability at Monash Business School produces high-quality research on business, economic and social problems in the developing world, with a particular focus on environment and sustainability.
We seek to further our understanding of these complex problems and how they can be mitigated. We conduct rigorous academic research, which is policy-relevant. To achieve this, we regularly engage with government departments, development agencies, and development NGOs.
Our researchers have extensive research expertise relevant to developing economies.
