Dear Friends,

In this month, we shall introduce the SDGs, beginning with its evolution. This is a rather large topic, and we shall deal with it in a few instalments as under:

  • The success of MDGs provided a clue as to how to implement Sustainable Development, even while the disagreements persisted.
  • A Basic Insight: The Doughnut Principle: ‘A Safe and Just Space for Humanity’.
  • Three major contributions: SDSN, SRC and Kate Raworth
  • Formulation of the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2016 – 2030
