The Development Program at GPRG covers a diverse range of topics within sustainable development, encompassing issues such as poverty reduction, food security, gender equality, and access to education and healthcare. The program draws together the latest development research from around the world, with a focus on addressing key issues facing the future of sustainable development. Our research is grounded in theory, backed by empirical evidence, and designed to be applicable in real-world settings. Our team of researchers actively engages in international research projects and contributes to policy networks, ensuring that our work is informed by the latest thinking and has real-world impact.

Current Research

The Development Program is currently concentrating its research efforts specifically on lead exposure. This entails a comprehensive study of the sources, effects, and potential mitigation strategies related to lead contamination. The program aims to understand the various ways in which lead enters the environment and impacts human health, particularly in vulnerable populations. This research is critical in developing effective policies and interventions to reduce lead exposure and prevent lead poisoning, especially in areas with high-risk factors such as outdated infrastructure or industrial pollution.
