Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations

IDDRI is an independant research institute and a multi-stakeholder dialogue platform who identifies the conditions and proposes tools to put sustainable development at the heart of international relations and public and private policies.

To achieve this, IDDRI identifies the conditions and proposes the tools for integrating sustainable development into policies. It takes action at different levels, from international cooperation to that of national and sub-national governments and private companies, with each level informing the other.

As a research institute and a dialogue platform, IDDRI creates the conditions for a shared analyses and expertise between stakeholders. It connects them in a transparent, collaborative manner, based on leading interdisciplinary research.

IDDRI then makes its analyses and proposals available to all.

Four issues are central to the institute's activities: climate, biodiversity and ecosystems, oceans, and sustainable develoment governance.
