  • The prevailing pattern of economic and social development all too often fails to deliver progress for all and to respect our planetary boundaries. We see climate change, biodiversity loss, and environmental degradation caused by economic development that is accompanied by persistent or even rising inequality, poverty, and even hunger. The current multiple crises are reinforcing some of these global problems. Simultaneously meeting the global challenges of achieving sustainable and inclusive development requires strong interdisciplinary and international research collaboration. Research at the interface of environment and development is often hampered by traditional academic boundaries. New ideas and fresh research approaches as well as inter-disciplinary exchange are needed to meet such challenges. Young researchers in particular play a key role in doing so.

    Therefore, several German research institutes, namely ATB, GIGA, IGZ, PIK, ZALF, and ZMT – all members of the Leibniz association – have initiated the Leibniz Environment and Development Symposium (LEADS) that now also counts on the support of RWI. The aim of LEADS is to foster interdisciplinary exchange and stimulate collaboration on global societal challenges among early career researchers and senior scholars.
