Centre for Development, Environment and Policy


Welcome to the Centre for Development, Environment and Policy. We hope you will join our community of international postgraduate online and distance learning students.

Environmental issues and the continuing poverty of large numbers of people around the world are among the greatest challenges of our times. They are inter-related in complex ways, with important ethical, political, economic, social and technical dimensions.

At CeDEP, we recognise the need for informed professionals with inter-disciplinary skills and understanding to tackle these issues effectively. Our Centre is unique in the range of postgraduate qualifications on offer, and we are keen to ensure that our online and distance learning not only offers teaching in the subject areas of sustainable development, poverty reduction and environmental management, but is in itself a tool for development.

As well as postgraduate teaching, CeDEP's academic staff have extensive international experience in research, which is published and shared globally with other academics, decision-makers and opinion-formers.
