Some of the hardest hit by changes in our environment are in developing nations. This requires tailored solutions that encompass economic change, social equity and environmental protection. To achieve sustainable development in poor and developing societies we need to move beyond conventional approaches toward transdisciplinary solutions that bring together academic and other kinds of knowledge, human rights, social justice and goals of ecological sustainability.

The International development and environment program at Monash University  will develop your knowledge and skills to analyse the causes of poverty, disadvantage and environmental change, and work effectively with a wide range of groups to plan and implement development that is environmentally sustainable.


Combine your industry experience or previous study with a strong foundation in understanding sustainability challenges, and use it to advance sustainability solutions in your sector. You’ll have the skills to provide strategic leadership in policy formulation, governance and regulatory advice,  management  and  capacity-building  in  sectors  as diverse as business, government and not-for-profits.
