Global development research

UQ’s applied research in global development is creating change in communities that need it most.

Our researchers are working to address the most pressing challenges facing the developing world — including climate change and the environment, agriculture and food security, governance, health and wellbeing, and gender equality. 

Through close engagement with our external partners and stakeholders, our researchers apply their expertise through development projects, fieldwork, applied research, capability building, knowledge management and policy-making.
