are emitted every year

News & Events

The Global Association of Master’s in Development Practice Programs (MDP), in collaboration with the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), will hold the Tenth Annual International Conference on Sustainable Development (ICSD) on 19-20 September, 2022 virtually. If you would like to present at the conference, you must submit an abstract as directed below. The conference is also open to observers (i.e. non-presenters). Simply register on the conference website to join us. Registration will open in July 2022.

The conference theme this year celebrates our 10-year anniversary: A Decade of ICSD. The aim of the conference is to bring together persons involved in research, policy, practice, and business. Participants will share practical solutions for achieving the SDGs at local and national levels. This year ICSD will accept abstracts within 9 themes, several of which have different “tracks” within them.

The SDGs and Value Chains: The interconnectedness of our value chains create complex webs across borders, sectors, and cultures. It’s important that we examine them to ensure they are supporting #sustainabledevelopment. This #ICSD2022 theme will examine the #SDGs and #valuechains including the agri-food system and global governance. Submit an abstract by May 1:

The SDSN Networks in Action report presents the work of the unique global network of problem solvers. This year’s edition features a specific focus on the impact of the networks and their efforts to localize the SDGs in their countries, engage with knowledge institutions and youth, improve education for the SDGs, fight the Covid-19 pandemic, advocate for a sustainable recovery, promote viable solutions initiatives, and develop their publications, events and actions.
