Ms. Ahmad and Ms. Disney came with Professor Cecilia Dalupan to share the mission, projects and programs of the Sustainable Development Strategies Group (SDSG). They also highlighted internship opportunities available for students.
SDSG is a sustainable development consulting group focused on capacity building for governments, communities and practitioners. Professor Dalupan, a Principal of SDSG, spoke passionately about the increasing awareness of environmental and natural resources sustainability issues. SDSG’s projects include the Model Mine Development Agreement, a template for government leaders when making long-term mining agreements. Other projects focus on transparency initiatives, government accountability, community benefits sharing and seminars and workshops to teaching natural resource development skills.

Nadia Ahmad is now working as a Legal Fellow at SDSG. Ms. Ahmad stated, “The specializations offered by the ENRGP program will really give you an edge.”
