In terms of the UNAM statutes that created it, the Multidisciplinary Research Unit has the same status as a Faculty. MR was formerly known as MRC and was established to promote and conduct research and to strengthen research collaboration with UNAM faculties and stakeholders from public and private sectors as well as partners within the region and beyond. MR recognizes the expertise within faculties and tap into it by including relevant faculty in research teams that are constituted for all research programmes. The current National Developmental Plan (4 Harambe Proposal Plan) address issues pertaining to economic development, and the sectors and enablers on which a vibrant economy can be sustainably based. The MR strengthened its research efforts in such priority areas and is currently implementing research programmes as outlined in the 5-year research agenda. MR’s research strategy is to provide relevant and accurate research information in various areas ranging from health, education, biodiversity, climate change, socio ecological systems, gender, Indigenous Knowledge Systems, etc. for policy decision making and programme interventions. A lot of resources are committed to undertaking research projects and to make our work worth the efforts.
