International Development and Sustainability Economics

Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

 An example in the Department is the problem-based learning project about health and the environment in urban Nepal. This is an interdisciplinary collaboration with several faculty members on campus focusing on:

  • Analyzing real-world data from the ground using analytical tools and empirical modules;
  • Work collaboratively to discover causal linkages in sustainable technologies, awareness curricular interventions, citizen science apparatus, and others;
  • Aim to implement a group effort of the ground in collaboration with international partners.
