Thematic tracks

Thematic tracks allow for discussions of considerable depth and detail on niche topics. The tracks are held simultaneously on themes in sync with the overall Summit theme and sub-themes. Conducted interspersed with plenary sessions, these thematic tracks are populated by experts and key practitioners from the grassroots. In the past, we have witnessed some very innovative and engaging sessions. The thematic tracks can be attended by all registered delegates.

This year WSDS will be hosting 25 distinct thematic tracks, deliberating on an array of sustainable development issues and solutions.

Please note: Thematic tracks held on October 5th, 7th and 8th will be at the India Habitat Centre; Thematic Tracks held on October 6th will be at the Vigyan Bhawan
