Sustainability and Development Conference

Event Date: 
Friday, November 9, 2018, 9:45 am to Sunday, November 11, 2018, 5:00 pm

Sustainable development, as a concept and call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and guarantee human well-being, is perhaps the greatest challenge facing humanity. The complexity of the meanings of sustainable development have meant that many scholars, researchers, decision makers, and practitioners see in it diverse ways in which to aspire for and achieve societal goals. Scholarly research, student training, and new opportunities for meaningful change continue to increase, especially with the United Nations-sponsored Sustainable Development Goals finding traction with governments and NGOs alike.

In collaboration with the journal World Development, this international conference on Sustainability and Development seeks to bring together a diverse and interdisciplinary constituency to engage with the best approaches and means to implement the Sustainable Development Goals and assess progress towards them.
