The Institut de Conseil et d'Etudes en Développement Durable (Institute for Consultancy and Studies in Sustainable Development) was founded in 1961 as a non-profit association. Until 2003, our research firm was called the Institut wallon de développement économique et social et d'aménagement du territoire (Walloon Institute for economic and social development and land-use planning).
ICEDD's various fields of activity correspond to this concern. We are interested in priority in the use and valorization of spatial (land-use planning, urbanism and territorial development), energy and material resources, integrating economic, environmental, social and institutional aspects.
ICEDD's projects are carried out using a scientifically independent approach geared to the general interest. Our research firm is independent of any economic group and any political or denominational movement.
