About Us

The Centre of Excellence on Sustainable Development at IIM Kashipur was setup with an explicit mandate to seek ways in which the institute can contribute towards undertaking research and other activities to inform policy and practice related to Sustainable Livelihoods and Development, particularly in Uttarakhand. The Centre seeks ways to transfer part of its learning, energy and effort to improve the management practices and delivery systems of institutions in the under-managed sector

The core belief underlying the formation of the Centre is that highly motivated people well versed with both management theory and practice can design and implement socially relevant and sustainable projects that can impact large number of lives. The mission of the Centre is:

  • To stretch the frontiers of knowledge and practice through research and application
  • To contribute significantly to the understanding and practice of three constituent domains of sustainability: environmental, economic and social.
