The call will be open October 15th–November 27th, 2020, please see webpage https://devres2021.se/
The conference aims to provide a creative forum for researchers, policy makers, practitioners, funders, and other stakeholders on how research for development can contribute to transformation for sustainability. DevRes 2021 will link theory, research, real-life practice and explore the complex interrelations between the various dimensions (like social, economic, environmental and more) of sustainability to advance research for development in the SDG era.
