Chemical Sciences in Development

About: Vision and Mission

We envision a world in which the chemical sciences play their optimal role in improving the quality of life and wellbeing for people everywhere and ensuring a sustainable future for the planet.
Inspired by a deeply-felt ethical concern for the disparities among and between people in different countries, IOCD's mission is to promote the pursuit and application of the chemical sciences for sustainable, equitable human development and economic growth, through:
  1. Raising the profile of the chemical sciences in development among researchers, funders, policy-makers and the public;
  2. Strengthening capacities at individual, institutional and national and global systems levels to apply the chemical sciences to meet current and future challenges and to advance global development sustainably.
