Connect to CNRD

Interested universities, networks, or institutions are welcome to contact us. Since its founding, CNRD has kept growing, bringing together academics who want to contribute to the post-2015 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. We are always looking to further enlarge the CNRD network. While the focal point is in Cologne, there are major satellites in 12 partner universities worldwide. In teaching and research CNRD pursues a transdisciplinary approach which is necessary for understanding and solving problems occurring in complex systems defined through the interactions of the natural resources base with human activities.

CNRD also invites you to join the new CNRD facebook page, a place for you to explore the latest news, images and information about the network.Our facebook page will give you access to events, announcements, images and you’ll be able to connect with other CNRD affiliates to join the debate.
