Master Track SDD



Sustainable Development Diplomacy (SDD) is a special, selective track within the Master's programmes Climate Studies (MCL, Specialisation Climate, Society and Economics), Environmental Sciences (MES, Major Environmental Policy), Forest and Nature Conservation (MFN, Specialization Policy & Society) and International Development Studies (MID, Specialization Politics & Governance of Development) of Wageningen University & Research (WUR), the Netherlands. The purpose of the track is to provide students – who will be future academics, practitioners and leaders in the public and private sector – with a combination of theory and practice of (inter)national diplomacy in the field of sustainable development. This track would thus allow SDD students to better understand, analyse and tackle the world’s most challenging sustainability problems.
