About Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation

We are the international expertise and capacity building business unit of Wageningen University & Research. We collaborate with governments, private sector, NGOs and CSOs and with other knowledge institutes. Having a solid knowledge base, we co-create knowledge and build capacities of individuals and institutions. Our aim is to strengthen capacities for sustainable development by knowledge co-creation, to have a lasting impact on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Our work focuses on the domain of food and the living environment.

Every day we empower individuals, businesses, sectors and countries and strengthen them in their capacity for sustainable and inclusive development.

The strength of our network, the broad knowledge available within Wageningen University & Research, our on-the-ground expertise and the way we combine content expertise with process guidance makes it possible to bring knowledge into action and improve the quality of life.

We are looking forward to working on new projects together with you.
