Lost in Translation? Understanding Resilience in Sustainable Development Policy
This collaborative project with the University of Cambridge and the American University in Cairo examines national approaches to resilience policy in sustainable development. This comparative approach spans the Global North and Global South to consider potential opportunities and challenges for multilateral development cooperation (e.g., South-South and triangular cooperation on water, agriculture, urban resilience). Situating resilience policy within global environmental politics, it works to identify potential pathways to bridge research and policy for sustainable development and effective climate action.
