In 2016, the Sustainable Development PhD Program at Columbia University together with the School of International and Public affairs and the Earth Institute, launched SusDeveR, a biennial research conference and symposium that brings together current students and alumni of the SDEV PhD program. The conference is an invitation-only event to discuss research ideas at different stages of development. The event also includes an open reception to the broader community of those interested in Sustainable Development.


The conference will take place at Columbia University on Friday, April 13 – Sunday, April 15, 2018.

While we are working on a finalized schedule we invite you to explore the preliminary schedule.

With the support of the Earth Institute, the Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy, and the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University in the City of New York
