SDPI TO ORGANIZE 14TH SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE FROM DEC 13
Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) is organizing its Fourteenth Sustainable Development Conference (SDC) from 13 to 15 December 2011 at Hotel Best Western, Islamabad. The overarching theme of the SDC 2011 is Redefining Paradigms of Sustainable Development in South Asia .
This year s Sustainable Development Conference will focus on the emerging debate on sustainable development policies beyond the MDGs and Rio 20+. This debate is not only expected to play a crucial role in shaping future development interventions by northern donors and the states in the South, but also questions the existing development paradigm.
Each SDC is designed to be a forum for sharing and exchanging dialogues on sustainable development with academia, practitioners, civil society, legislators and policy makers. Besides Pakistan, speakers are coming from Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, India, Switzerland, Germany, Canada, USA, and the UK.
The Fourteenth SDC will highlight how roadblocks such as flawed policy frameworks and implementation processes; funding constraints; and, governance challenges that have hampered the achievement of an equitable development.
