The SDRN Annual Sustainable Development Research Conference is the flagship event in the Sustainable Development Research Network calendar. As always, the 2007 Conference will provide a platform for the presentation and debate of new, cutting-edge sustainable development research, while also highlighting work taking place within SDRN’s new Research into Practice workstreams.

Research into practice is a new workstream for SDRN. It comprises joint programmes of work led by four expert organisations in areas central to the delivery of sustainable development – transport, business resource efficiency, spatial planning and development and engineering. The workstream is intended to give SDRN a broader regional reach and promote greater interaction with businesses than it has had in the past.

Sustainable transport

By SDRN on 7th March 2007
Found in: Research and Resources

The first of SDRN’s new Research into Practice workstreams launched earlier this year with a focus on Sustainable Transport.

Transport is one of the major contributors to carbon emissions and it is recognised that a significant reduction will be required to reduce emissions to sustainable levels. There are also broader problems associated with transport which have social, environmental and economic impacts: non-carbon emissions, air quality, noise, congestion, social cohesion, community severance and accessibility to a full range of service for some sections of society.

Spatial Planning & Development

By SDRN on 6th March 2007
Found in: Research and Resources

The Spatial Planning and Development workstream aims to integrate the experience of planning practitioners with the sustainable development research community, to explore the means by which research and practical experience can influence one another and in turn contribute to the more meaningful formulation and implementation of policy.

Date and Time: 
Tuesday, December 12, 2006 - 16:15

Between early 2005 and December 2006 and in conjunction with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, SDRN held a high profile series of evening lectures. Under the title 'Sustainable Development and Quality of Life', the lectures were intended to introduce innovative and challenging thinking from current research to a wider policy audience.
