Mission

The Center for Development and Strategy is a non-partisan 501(c)(3) think tank devoted to the research and discussion of the nexus between global development, sustainability, and security in an era of unprecedented change. Fostered by a younger generation, CDS has a unique perspective that is both holistic and grounded. We seek to simplify the complexity of our world and offer insight on solutions to some of our most pressing challenges in the 21st century. Our writing has been published in top policy outlets including Scientific American, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Slate, The National Interest, War on the Rocks, and the Wilson Center's New Security Beat. We've participated at the United Nations General Assembly and are active in discussions surrounding environmental security.
