International Networks

WASD cooperates with a wide range of institutions, such as universities, research centres and governmental departments all over the world, particularly in developing countries. Our international networks bring together multidisciplinary academics, policymakers and practitioners.

By bringing together international leaders and enabling them to work in partnership, we seek to ensure that we pass on to future generation at least as much environmental wealth as we inherited.

WASD works closely with its sister organisations, Sudan Knowledge and the Middle Eastern Knowledge Economy Institute.
