We bring people together

UKCDS is a collaborative. We facilitate a more coordinated approach to research for international development.

We share knowledge

Connecting the research with a changing policy landscape ensures solutions are relevant both nationally and internationally.

We promote opportunities

Recognising the value of science and research, we help identify future research needs and provide a gateway to funding and job opportunities.

UKCDS brings together UK government departments and research funders to deliver effective development outcomes

  • UKCDS Chair
  • Chief Executive, Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)
