The UNU Institute for Sustainability and Peace (UNU-ISP) seeks to achieve and promote a better understanding of three of the most pressing issues on the UN agenda: global change, peace and security, and development. UNU-ISP takes an innovative approach to sustainability, bridging these cross-cutting themes through research, educational and collaborative initiatives with the aim of solving current problems and anticipating future challenges.

UNU-ISP works in collaboration with other UNU Research and Training Centres and Programmes as well as through co-operative relationships with the global academic and policy-making communities.

Within the context of sustainability and peace, UNU-ISP:

  • Conducts research; undertakes education, training and capacity development; and facilitates the dissemination of scientific knowledge and information to the United Nations and its agencies, to scholars and to the public.
  • Provides opportunities for postgraduate students and professionals to obtain a wider understanding of relevant issues.
  • Integrates the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities into a transdisciplinary approach that contributes to the development and strengthening of policy frameworks and management actions at all levels.
