The capital is all set to witness a day long ‘Summit on Sustainability’ today at Hotel Lalit, New Delhi, to take on the barriers of sustainable development.
Climate change has begun to take root in our collective consciousness and the world is waking up to it.
The day-long summit comprises of two sessions. The first session will focus on “Environmental Sustainability and Economic Development: Antithetical to each other?”, while the second session will include “Water Rejuvenation or Water Wars: What are we Heading for?”.
The panel discussions will include noted environmentalists and offer industry and academic perspectives on the theme and its relevance in the context of India — a developing economy — along with providing hands-on experience on real time situations and sustainability challenges and engaging the participants in devising practical and effective and practical policy solutions for addressing these challenges.
The idea is to bring in all the stakeholders on one platform and discuss the fundamental questions about sustainability and come up with some practical policy suggestions. The 2019 summit on sustainability will marshal the data to measure past progress, and assess where and how policymakers, financial institutions and business leaders should act.
