The World Sustainable Development Forum (WSDF), established by TERI in
2005, identifies, analyzes and disseminates policy interventions to enhance
human well-being and create conditions for a sustainable future. The forum
is supported by distinguished patrons and advisory committee members,
comprising global leaders, policy makers, industry and academia. As part
of its outreach activities, the forum conducts Regional Sustainable Development
Summit (RSDS) and DSDS to spread key messages on issues of sustainable
development in varied contexts. The forum conducted the first regional
summit under the WSDF-RSDS series in Shirakawa, Japan in 2006, followed
by the second RSDS in 2007 in Tunisia. In 2009, two regional summits were
held in Greece and the Philippines on 'Climate Change and Challenges for
Future Generations' and a 'High-level Dialogue on Climate Change in the
Asia-Pacific: A Development Challenge', respectively. Under the WSDF-DSDS
series, DSDS is being hosted annually since 2001.
Special events of DSDS 2011 will be announced shortly.
