Welcome to the Centre for Development Economics and Sustainability.
The Centre for Development Economics and Sustainability at Monash Business School produces high quality research on business, economic and social problems affecting the developing world and the environment and sustainability more broadly.
Our members conduct rigorous, policy-relevant research to better understand these problems and the ways in which they can be mitigated. As part of this work, they regularly engage with government departments, development agencies and NGOs.
Our researchers have extensive research expertise relevant to developing economies.
