The Cerdi

The CERDI is a research centre on international development established in 1976. At that time, it was the first joint-unit between the CNRS - National Center for Scientific Research - and a French university dedicated to development economics.

The CERDI gathers researchers from the CNRS, the IRD (French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development) and faculties from the Université Clermont Auvergne.

The publications and expertise of the members of the CERDI cover all the aspects of economic development: the engines of growth along with the social, economic and environmental consequences of development.

Key research areas are:

  •     development financing,
  •     sustainable development paths
  •     the integration of developing economies into the world economy.
