CSD designs and develops innovative solutions for addressing the challenges of sustainable development. Using the latest Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), CSD is bringing high-quality education and vocational training to girls and young women, equipping Community Health Workers with smartphones to guide decision making and facilitate longitudinal tracking, and reducing laboratory turnaround time for patients in hard-to-reach rural communities.
CSD works closely with partners in the public, private, and civil society sectors to promote sustainable development policies and best practices. We advise governments at the national, district, and local levels to strengthen health and education systems, scale up evidence-based solutions, and adopt policies to protect the planet and promote well-being. We also help businesses adapt their sustainability strategies and extend their impact to low-income communities around the world.
