This portal is for students, faculty, resource persons and collaborating institutions of the Masters in Development Practice (MDP) being conducted at the University of Peradeniya. This program was developed by the University of Peradeniya and the Foundation for Environment, Climate and Technology (FECT) as the main partners. The other partners included the Earth Institute at Columbia University and the Maldivian Ministry of Environment to whom FECT acted as the liason. This programme is supported by MacArthur Foundation, Chicago as a node of a global network of 22 Universities that are offering MDP. The Global Master's in Development Practice Secretariat, based at Columbia University's Earth Institute coordinates this  network. The MDP curriculum draws from a range of disciplines across the Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Health Sciences and Management. In addition, the programme at Peradeniya has a focus on Southern Asia, the sustainable development of tropical coastal areas and small islands, adapting to climate change and disaster risk management.
