Administrative / Biographical History

The International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) was founded in 1971, under the sponsorship of the Aspen [Colorado] Institute for Humanistic Studies, as the International Institute for Environmental Affairs (IIEA). The impetus for its foundation was the impending UN Conference on the Human Environment, held in Stockholm in 1972. Solly Zuckerman was a founder member of IIED's Board and Council. IIED published the theme book of the Stockholm Conference, Only One Earth by Barbara Ward and Reneacute; Dubos.
