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
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
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.
