The Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) organized its Sixteenth SDC “Creating Momentum: Today is Tomorrow” from 10—12 December 2013 in Islamabad, Pakistan, at the Best Western Hotel. SDPI’s Sixteenth SDC showcased 27 panels and two plenary sessions: opening and closing. In these sessions, 161 panellists participated from Afghanistan, Australia (via Skype), Bangladesh, Canada, Ecuador, Finland, Germany, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Thailand (via Skype), UK and the US. Of the 161 participants, 122 were speakers, 56 special commentators, chairpersons and guests of honour. The SDC lighted our present position and inclination to forecast and potentially modify our decisions that may improve our tomorrow. Under various sub-themes, the Conference brought to attention that the failure to act urgently is premised on the argument that waiting for another tomorrow for action will result in wasting opportunities that may not be available ever again.
