International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD)

Master’s in Development Practice (MDP): Indigenous Development





Adesuwa Ero worked with the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) based in Winnipeg, an international think tank promoting human development and environmental sustainability. She was assigned a project called We are Cities (an initiative of the Cities for People group), a nationwide campaign engaging Canadians in ways of shaping a vision and action plan for how can more liveable cities be built. Her project specifically was to engage Winnipeg youth in a conversation on ways of making Winnipeg more livable in terms of living, working and playing.

She states: "Working with IISD was extremely pivotal in helping me build new skills, better understanding of city metrics, broader knowledge of indigenous-led development as well as knowledge of Winnipeg local organizations and how to situate myself within the broad scheme of things."
