About the IIED blog

IIED blogs contain ideas, views and experiences sharing our agenda to build a fairer and more sustainable world. Any member of staff at IIED can blog, and many do, offering their opinions in a direct and informal way.

We blog on a wide range of topics related to IIED’s work. You can use the blog themes menu to find blogs about subjects that interest you, and a full archive can be found on the main IIED blogs page.

We also feature posts by guest bloggers, many of whom work for partner organisations around the world. Check out our bloggers page for a full list of IIED’s experts and guests.

We want our blogs to be personal and topical, and written for particular (sometime niche) audiences. We provide some guidance and support because we want our bloggers to make the best use of the medium. But there are many different ways to blog, and you’ll see that our bloggers take different approaches.

All of our blogs are clearly attributed, and are written by the named authors.

Stay in touch

We actively post and engage in conversations on a number of online networks and platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Or sign up to receive our monthly newsletter.

We also welcome blogs from guest contributors that complement our work and share our vision to build a fairer and more sustainable world. To suggest a contribution, or topic, contact us.
