The University of Queensland (UQ) has a broad commitment to research and teaching in sustainable development. In particular the Global Change Institute and the Sustainable Minerals Institute of the university have a direct program of research that links with the SDSN objectives. In addition, the ARC Centre for Excellence in Environmental Decisions at UQ has developed metrics for monitoring sustainability indicators and assisting in development planning. The School of Agriculture and Food Sciences and the Institute for Social Science Research’s Social Wellbeing, Health and Housing Research Program as well as the UQ Energy Initiative are also well-placed to contribute towards the SDSN mandate. The University also hosts the Rotary Centre for International Studies in Peace and Conflict and the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining (CSRM). CSRM is a leading applied research centre, committed to improving social and environmental performance in the mining and energy sectors globally. CSRM works with companies, communities and governments in mining regions around the world to deliver better outcomes.
