The Center for Development and Strategy 501(c)(3) is exploring the nexus of global development, sustainability, and security in an era of unprecedented change. Led by a younger generation, CDS has a unique perspective on the dynamic and complex state of environmental security in the 21st century. The CDS team is comprised of leading scientists and global affairs experts that have years of experience working in government, business, and non-profits. CDS analysts are proud to have communicated the need for securing sustainable solutions to both high-level decision-makers and media outlets that include Slate, War on the Rocks, Scientific American, The Diplomat, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, and the United Nations General Assembly. In addition to providing simple and clear written analysis, CDS’s DataViz team develops easy-to-use mapping dashboards that track environmental hazards and emergencies in real-time. In 2020, CDS received a Gold Star Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, the nation’s top charity rating agency.
