United Nations University Institute Of Advanced Studies Charity Profile
The challenges of making sustainable development a reality have never been as acute. Although considerable resources have been invested to improve human wellbeing in sustainable ways, we are still looking for workable solutions to achieve this. These solutions must reconcile technological advances with environmental protection, human wellbeing with economic development, and sound policy-making with good governance.
At the United Nations University Institute of Advanced Studies (UNU-IAS), we believe that such solutions exist. We are here to identify them, to develop them and to put them into practice.
UNU-IAS is part of the United Nations University (UNU) system, comprised of a network of Research and Training Centres and Programmes (RTC/Ps) which are assisted by associated and cooperating institutions and scholars from around the globe.
Our mission is to ďadvance knowledge and promote learning for policy-making to meet the challenges of sustainable development"
United Nations University Institute of Advanced Studies (UNU-IAS) engages international expertise at local, regional, and global levels from multiple disciplines in the natural, social, and life sciences. This combined expertise is the cornerstone of our research programmes, allowing us to focus on the development of informed policy-making to meet sustainable development challenges.
We use advanced research methodologies and approaches to challenge conventional thinking and contribute creative solutions to key emerging issues of global concern. In particular, we focus on issues that are high on the United Nations agenda.
Our research is advanced in that it looks ahead into the future to identify strategic areas of research related to sustainable development, particularly for governments and decision makers in developing countries.
The Institute applies a strong policy-oriented research programme designed to promote strategic approaches to sustainable development. Research consists of advanced and multidisciplinary methodologies accompanied by postgraduate education and capacity development activities, particularly for developing countries.
