Our research agenda addresses issues within and between economics and policy for sustainability

  • Ecological macroeconomics: reduce inequality, fix the financial system, create meaningful jobs, steady-state economic approaches.
  • Socio-economic benefits of ecosystem services: to manage ecosystems and biodiversity sustainably in Africa.
  • Resource use and well-being: to investigate the dependency and potential decoupling of human well-being and development from biophysical resource use and environmental impacts in Nigeria and Africa.
  • Sustainable cities: how to make African cities more liveable, smarter, climate robust, energy-efficient, connected and low carbon emission to enhance the prosperity and well-being of residents.
