Based on background papers submitted by ICDSS member societies, the Secretariat, decided to initiate collaborative research and the development of policy recommendations on three topics:

  1. Immigration/Migration
  2. Disasters/Trauma
  3. Sustainability (including global climate change)

Most of these background papers recommended that collaborative developmental research is needed to study these issues from an ecological perspective over the lifespan because the extant literature provides bits of knowledge on specific populations in specific circumstances yet global policy requires a more comprehensive perspective.

We have built a strong partnership with HDIN to provide individuals with the resources needed to collaborate on global intervention research.
