DevRes 2020 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), not least when aiming to improve conditions in low-resource settings.

Given the current situation with corona virus and all the uncertainties we are facing, we have reached the conclusion to postpone DevRes 2020.

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 2020 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.
