The Executive Education Course on Sustainable Development Diplomacy (SDD) is a two-week training course of Wageningen University and Research Centre (WUR), the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture, and Innovation (EL&I) (former Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality (LNV)), and the Sustainability Challenge Foundation (SCF). 

The purpose of the program is to provide (future) leaders in the public, private or non-profit sector with a combination of theory and practice of international (including European) negotiations in the field of sustainable development, allowing them to better tackle the world’s most challenging public problems. The course aims at teaching both experienced mid-career practitioners from ministries and excellent PhD and/or master students from Fletcher and WUR.
