CSUD has been awarded a grant from the Earth Institutes’s Advanced Consortium on Cooperation, Conflict and Complexity.  Jacqueline Klopp, CSUD Associate Research Scholar, will be the principal investigator of our study, “Sustainability and the City: An Exploration of Concepts, Metrics and Practices”.  This study seeks to produce a review of sustainability literature in urban studies with a special focus on the definitions, concepts and metrics around sustainable development and sustainable human development.  The study will also draw from our ongoing and long term research work in Nairobi, Kenya to test and apply competing concepts of sustainability metrics to assess their utility when confronted with concrete problems in the field of urban studies.

AC4’s mission is to support, share and connect theory, research and practice at Columbia University and beyond related to conflict resolution, violence prevention, sustainable development, and peace. Through the support of faculty and students at Columbia University, and in collaboration with centers and institutes from Columbia University and others across the globe, AC4 works to generate cutting-edge ideas, practices and technologies to foster constructive conflict resolution, violence prevention, sustainable development, and peace.
