DevRes 2021 – Advancing Sustainable Transformation

Meeting the grand challenges of our time requires societal transformation.
Our research is increasingly influenced by the 2030 Agenda with its seventeen
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),external link not least when aiming to improve
conditions in low-resource settings.

Research for development covers a broad range of topics and approaches
which generates knowledge that benefits sustainable development. An understanding
of interconnected systems and processes is necessary in order to
respond to challenges and attain synergies between sectors and actors. This
requires reflections on the scientific advancements; connecting science,
policy and implementation, context and power relationships.

This conference aims to provide a creative forum for researchers, policy makers,
practitioners, funders, and other stakeholders on how research for development
can contribute to transformation for sustainability. DevRes 2021 will
link theory, research, real-life practice and explore the complex interrelations
between the various dimensions (like social, economic, environmental and
more) of sustainability to advance research for development in the SDG era.
