Sustainable Development Study Centre is working as an interdisciplinary setup with Departments of Physics, Chemistry, Economics, Geography and Biotechnology. The center is currently focusing on research activity encompassing sustainable livelihoods, environmental management and community development in Pakistan with national attention drawn to the problems of environmental degradation and related issues. It is hoped that SDSC will help to pioneer a new trend for applied research emerging from academia to influence policy makers in the area of socioeconomic development. In addition the center has established linkage with other institutions of higher learning in environmental research. The center has designed interdisciplinary courses and research to overcome the trust deficit between policy makers and academia.
