The 23rd edition of the annual flagship event of The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI)—the World Sustainable Development Summit (WSDS)—will be held from 7-9 February 2024 in New Delhi. The Summit deliberations will focus on the umbrella theme: Leadership for Sustainable Development and Climate Justice.
Today’s challenges for attaining sustainable development are complex and interconnected and will need everyone to work towards creating a more sustainable future. Leadership plays a crucial role in driving change. Leadership for achieving sustainable development requires inclusivity, resiliency, adaptability, and creativity.
It is with this background, TERI is bringing together leading representatives from international organizations, government, business & industries, research & academia, civil society, and youth to deliberate on championing initiatives on sustainable development and climate justice. The Summit deliberations will examine topics such as integrating sustainable development, nature-based solutions, adaptation and resilience, sustainable consumption and lifestyles, addressing the energy trilemma, and climate action. Special features at the Summit will include Ministerial Addresses, Youth Plenary, Women Leadership Addresses, CEO Forum, Expo, Special Events and Thematic Tracks.
By playing a constructivist role, the Summit, and its knowledge initiative, Act4Earth seek to reinforce commitment at all levels to enhance ambition and action to create a more sustainable and equitable world for present and future generations.
