The Sussex Sustainability Research Programme supports the sustainability of our planet through rigorous interdisciplinary research, stimulating action and influencing policy.

Our research projects

Building on our existing strengths across the social and natural sciences, our research is rooted in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our funded research addresses interactions among the goals, and how to minimise trade-offs and maximise synergies.

Our projects were funded through the SSRP Fund, and bring together a combination of disciplines from our core Schools and the Institute of Development Studies (IDS). These projects have been grouped into the six encompassing themes below.
