Towards sustainable markets
The need to transition to more sustainable and inclusive economies to address growing inequality, avoid devastating climate change and deliver the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is urgent. This cannot be achieved by governments alone; they must join businesses (of all shapes and sizes), investors and civil society in innovative partnerships. IIED is developing the evidence to support more inclusive and sustainable policies and practice across a range of sectors crucially important for poor people and the environment. We focus on people-centred approaches, involving citizens in the design, development, interpretation and use of research and dialogue.
