Environmental Governance and Sustainable Development

The Environmental Governance and Sustainable Development (EGSD) research interest group explores the many different facets of environment and sustainable development, including national and international law and policy relating to climate change, water, biodiversity, pollution, environmental crimes, environmental justice and human rights.  

This multidisciplinary group acts as a platform for researchers from Northumbria Law School and the wider University, whose research interests include the governance of the environment and sustainable development. Members include well established researchers, early career researchers and PhDs that are addressing environmental governance and sustainable development challenges at both national, regional and global scales.  

Activities of the Environmental Governance and Sustainable Development research interest group include running knowledge exchange seminars which tackle cross-cutting research sub-themes, such as the sustainable development goals, environmental justice and climate change. Additionally, the research interest group provides an opportunity to foster research collaborations and ensure that Northumbria’s research in this area is reaching key constituencies.   

To find out more about the group please contact either Professor Alistair Rieu-Clarke, or Professor Gita Gill
