ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
OVERARCHING THEME OF THE SDC 2021
The Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) is pleased to announce its Twenty-fourth Sustainable Development Conference (SDC) from 6 – 9 December 2021 in Islamabad, Pakistan. The overarching theme of this year’s Conference is Beyond the Pandemic: Leaving No One Behind.
The Twenty-fourth Sustainable Development Conference will be a forward-looking conference and a reflection on the two years since the COVID-19 pandemic. What are some of the lessons learnt during these challenging years? What can be done to catch up with the missed targets and how can they be compensated for the time loss; and how well are we prepared for future disasters? What were some of the opportunities gained or lost during this time frame and as seen through the prism of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? What midcourse correction strategy can be adopted to steer towards sustainable development in the coming years? These are some of the questions that will be addressed.
