Very informative and detailed. Prof. Sachs covers all aspects of sustainable development in detail. Though the course was designed in 2013 hence does not cover the latest development to SDGs to date.

This course was perfect for those wanting to explore the world of development, broad enough to include all interlinked themes, with sufficient reading materials to spark one's specializing interests.

I would like different speakers. Some information is too repetitive. Could be shorter.

Excellent course! 4 stars though, instead of 5, for the lack of minimum certification.

If there was certificate associated with this course, I must have clicked on 5 stars.
