The cosmological constant in supergravity and in string theory

I will discuss the cosmological constant as parameter in supergravity and in string theory. In particular, I will present examples of four-dimensional de Sitter vacua as a result of moduli stabilisation in string compactifications consistent with weak coupling and large volume and in view of the swampland conjectures.
