In an increasingly interconnected and complex world, research is critical to understanding and developing responses to real-world problems. Grand challenges such as climate change, globalization and population growth are having a major impact on communities around the world. However, research can only be effective in addressing these trends if it’s coupled with strong community partnerships, long-term commitments, collaboration, and interdisciplinary cooperation. TPP’s research generates new knowledge within the context of community development, empowering communities to co-create innovative, self-sufficient solutions to improve lives.
