SDPI was founded in August 1992 on the recommendation of the Pakistan National Conservation Strategy (NCS), also called Pakistan’s Agenda 21. The NCS placed Pakistan’s socio-economic development within the context of a national environmental plan. This highly acclaimed document, approved by the Federal Cabinet in March 1992, outlined the need for an independent non-profit organization to serve as a source of expertise for policy analysis and development, policy intervention, and policy and programme advisory services. SDPI is registered under the Societies Registration Act, XXI of 1860.

The Institute’s activities are designed to provide:
SDPI defines sustainable development as the enhancement of peace, social justice and well-being within and across generations. It produces knowledge that can enhance the capacity of government to make informed policy decisions and to engage civil society on issues of public interest. The Institute acts both as a generator of original research on sustainable development issues and an information resource for individuals and institutions concerned. SDPI’s function is thus two-fold: an advisory role fulfilled through research, policy advice and advocacy; and an enabling role realized through providing other individuals and organizations with resource materials and training. We welcome your views and any inquiries you may have on our website and/or organization as a whole.
