Institute profile:

CDE is the University of Bern's centre for sustainable development research. It aims to contribute to sustainable development worldwide through research partnerships, education and training, development of concepts and tools, and policy advice. CDE's focuses include management of natural resources, sustainable regional development, and interventions that maximise human potential to address the challenges of global change. The goals are to understand the effects of global change on natural resources and people's lives; develop and disseminate context-specific and multi-sectoral innovations;
and, through education, promote learning for and from sustainable development. Combining methods, such as GIS-based earth observation and participatory field-based analysis, is typical of CDE's approach. CDE hosts the secretariat of WOCAT (World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies).
