Recently in September 2015, the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable
Development that included 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 inter-linked targets.
The goals and targets covered under 2030 Agenda includes poverty eradication, mitigating pollution,
increasing reliability and sustainability, ensuring access to clean air, water and energy, sanitation and
hygiene, sustainable cities and urbanization, biodiversity conservation etc. A sharp focus was laid to
achieving economic, social, cultural, civil, politicaland human rights under SDGs by removing
gender inequality, conflicts, poverty and environmental threats. In 2015, 197 countries also adopted a
global agreement on combating and addressing the issue of climate change, known as Paris
Agreement, in 2015.
As per the Paris Agreement, it was decided that both rich and poor countries would take actions to curb
the rise in global temperature and also achieve SDGs in a broader perspective. However, it is needless
to say that little has been achieved in terms of either achieving Sustainable Development Goals or
meeting the targets of Paris Agreement. Every country today faces a huge challenge to supply the
energy and employment needs of ever growing population and keeping climate change in check by
reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In order to ensure sustainable development, we would have to
make informed and scientific choices. For this, there is an urgent need of collaborative effort among
various stakeholders in terms of infrastructure development, research and development, development
of clean technologies and formulation of a common minimum sustainable development policy.
This world environment summit 2021 would provide such a platform for active deliberations among
various stakeholders and would aim to produce actionable suggestions for the policy makers. The
main focus would be to build capacities on best practices on affordable, alternative solutions,
sustainable and clean energy, pollution control and management, restoration of ecosystem services,
cure & prevention of environmental health diseases, affordable and sustainable spatial planning
techniques and sustainable transport systems. Attempts would be made to explore the inter-linkages
between global environmental challenges, human health and sustainable development in light of
SDG's 2030, SENDAI Framework 2030 and Paris agreement 2015.
The World environment Summit 2021 will be organized in both mode including physical and
virtual (Online) mode and the participants may join as per their suitability. The Certificates of
participation will be the same. We have designed a separate fee structure for both types of
participants. Online participant’s fee is approx. 50% less than physically attendees.
