Human hands pointing to a map

CDE advises and supports public and private clients regarding all questions of sustainable development – especially those involving our research foci and implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. We link issues at global, national, and local levels and support solutions that transcend sectoral boundaries. These approaches have gained in importance with the recent adoption of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Our diverse methodological skills in the social and natural sciences, our proven expertise in geographic information science, and our know-how in information and communication technologies all ensure support of the highest quality. Our projects are characterized by joint knowledge production with concerned actors and embeddedness in concrete contexts. These characteristics are central to our understanding of sustainability, our approach, and the solutions we offer.
