ISPN - Instituto Sociedade, População e Natureza

Who we are

The Institute for Society, Population and Nature (ISPN) is a non-profit, independent research and documentation center, founded in 1990 and headquartered in Brasilia. Its mission is to contribute to sustainable development with greater social and environmental equity. It conducts and promotes scientific research, disseminates information, and encourages exchange among researchers. At the same time, activities of social and environmental movements and public policy making are fostered, at the intersections among development, population and environment. The ISPN’s goals are:

  • Enlargement of scientific knowledge in the relationship between development, population and environment and its implications in public policies;
  • Technical cooperation among researchers, planners, executers, legislators, press and other political and social actors, and dissemination of knowledge through documentation, seminars, meetings, courses and publications;
  • The offer of inputs for the formulation of proposals for political action in the different government levels, in non-governmental organizations and social and environmental movements.

Areas of intervention:

  • Environment: socioenvironmental policies, environmental management, sustainable livelihoods, consumer patterns;
  • Development: regional, urban and rural development, gender, minorities, education, health and environment, civil society, innovation, food security;
  • Population: migration, fertility, mortality, population and development, population and environment.
