    Summary

    Sustainability reporting is the practice adopted by organizations for measuring, communicating, and being accountable to internal and external stakeholders for organizational performance towards the goal of sustainable development. "Sustainability reporting" is a broad term considered synonymous with others used to describe reporting on economic, environmental, and social impacts (e.g., triple bottom line, corporate responsibility reporting, etc.). As the stakeholders like government agencies, employees, investors, financial institutions, community, NGOs, consumers, etc., have become more demanding and demand for companies to disclose information on its social, environmental, and economic impacts is growing , it has become necessary for the companies to communicate and engage with all these stakeholders in the decision-process and hence sustainability reporting has emerged to be an important tool for stakeholder engagement and communication.

    Management Development Programme on "Gender, Equity and Water Management"

    Venue : Hyderabad
    Date : 22-23 August 2018

    Summary

    Gender mainstreaming has been part of the international discourse on Integrated Water Resource Management for many years. There have been several efforts and initiatives in making the water sector both more gender balanced and gender sensitive. However, critical challenges still remain to be addressed.

    This programme develops a good conceptual and theoretical understanding of gender, rights and equity issues among participants while providing them with exposure to the practical challenges in making the water sector more gender balanced and gender sensitive. The programme also aims to build capacities of participants with respect to gender equity by suggesting practical strategies to enable them to work for sustainable and gender sensitive management of water resources. The overall objective is to make the participants better informed and motivated to make changes within their overall sphere of influence as well as to emerge as stronger advocates for gender equity at a personal level.

    The programme comprises two days of intensive sessions. The pedagogy comprises lectures, case studies, short films, and group work to facilitate cross-learning and synthesis.

    Short-Term Training programme on Data Science Applications for Sustainability

    Venue : TERI University
    Start Date : 10 July 2017
    End Date : 12 July 2017

    Summary

    With the concept of a digital world taking precedence, our lives are being incessantly mapped and recorded in the digital realm. This, among other things, has led to availability of plethora of data that needs to be analysed in order to discover hidden patterns that are far from random. This is done through the field of Data Science. There are several definitions of data science available. Data science is considered to be an amalgamation of statistics, computer science, and application in various sectors. Large datasets of spatial and temporal information are assembled and manipulated in order to improve the understanding and management of complex systems. At its core, data science involves assemblage, management, and analysis of large spatio-temporal datasets for their translation into information that can eventually be used by decision makers for policymaking. Although data science is used in different domains, such as marketing, management, natural resource management, climate change studies, finances, development economics, among many others, an understanding of connection between the field of data science and sustainability is still limited.

    Both the field of sustainability and data science being fairly new fields, there are a limited amount of academic resources that have been written about synergy between the two topics. A few academicians and professionals, however, are already working in data science applications for sustainability. Keeping this in mind, there is a need to strengthen the knowledge base by conducting capacity-building training programmes. The application of data science on sustainability can be examined through the triple bottom line/pillars (environment, social, and economic) perspectives.
