— Welcome to DSSP —
The Doctoral Studies Support Program (DSSP) on “Environmental peace building and development in Colombia” was launched in December 2017 with the signing of the Cooperation Agreement between the Center of Development Research (Zentrum für Entwicklungsforschung – ZEF) at the University of Bonn and the Institute of Environmental Studies (Instituto de Estudios Ambientales – IDEA) at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia.
The DSSP is financed by the German Academic Exchange Service (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst – DAAD), within the framework of the “Sustainable Development Goals Graduate Schools” program, which aims at consolidating cooperation relationships between German higher education institutions and academic peers from countries in Africa, Latin America and Asia, in order to make progresses in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) proposed by the United Nations.
DSSP is one of seven international DAAD SDG Graduate Schools.
