Visiting Researchers Program

The Center for Sustainable Development at University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh offers many opportunities for local and international students (Masters and PhD) and young researchers (Post-doctoral) to gain unique, on-the-ground insights into ‘sustainable development’ and interdisciplinary research.

Our visiting researcher program promotes the exchange of knowledge & ideas between Bangladeshi and foreign research scholars, mutual enrichment, and linkages between research and education. It also stimulates international collaborative research efforts. Visiting researchers are helped to find relevant locations including ULAB-CSD’s research project sites to carry out their research activities, where they can be exposed to our research into sustainable livelihoods, integrated water resources management, ecosystem services for poverty alleviation, organic farming, climate change adaptation, gender in aquaculture, disaster management and so on. We host visiting scholars who are pursuing a research projects on IWRM, ecosystem services and poverty alleviation, climate change adaptation, disaster management, gender and development, green business, etc.
