TERI’s visionary Founder-Director Dr Rajendra Kumar Pachauri’s leadership, vision, and hard work had made TERI the leading voice in energy and climate change that it is today. Throughout his tenure as IPCC Chairman, Dr. Pachauri helped in raising awareness and building meaningful conversations on the climate change and its impacts at a global level. It was in this same vein that he instituted the World Sustainable Development Summit (WSDS), formerly known as the Delhi Sustainable Development Summit, in 2001 to bring together governments, global leaders, policymakers, businesses, civil society organizations, youth, and thought leaders to work towards the common goal of sustainable development and environmental conservation.
This WSDS as we recall his passion for environmental conservation for a greener and sustainable future, the session titled ‘In Memoriam’ will try to build on his ideals, ideas, and vision to reimagine sustainable development pathways for India and the world, given the present geo-political context.
