The Sustainable Development Institute
A redesign of this site is under consideration. Please revisit periodically.
SDI seeks to heighten the environmental quality of economic development efforts through improvements in policy and practice. Its geographical concentration is on tropical forest regions and the Atlantic coast of Canada, the U.S., and the eastern Caribbean.
A specialist in environmental communications, SDI informs policymakers and the general public about positive grassroots activities that demonstrate synergies between economic and environmental goals, but too often fail to get recognition or support from policy communities.
SDI also works to enlighten such decision makers about the sometimes sharply negative environmental and economic consequences of poorly conceived development projects. When appropriate, SDI tries to build linkages between groups working at the grassroots level in order to strengthen their overall effectiveness and enhance their appeal to policy communities.
