SDGs and Sustainable Livelihood: Opportunities and Challenges in India
The working population in the India are disproportionately affected by the economic forces that drive unemployment and vulnerable employment, which is a major threat to sustainable livelihood. “Global Employment Trends for Youth 2017”, published by the International Labour Organization (ILO), mentioned that in most of the developing countries including India, around 16.7 per cent of young workers live on income below the extreme poverty threshold of US$1.90 a day, partly because they often start their working lives in the informal economy. This brings us to the argument that the developing countries need to focus on sustainable livelihood generation programmes with specific thrust on youth, which will have direct implications in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, The UN initiated SDGs that present before us a formidable challenge of designing and implementing strategies to generate sustainable livelihood. Hence, it is of utmost importance
Keeping these challenges in mind, the Department of Policy Studies at TERI SAS is organizing a one-day conference titled “SDGs and Sustainable Livelihood: Opportunities and Challenges in India”. The main aim of the conference is to discuss how we could strategize and implement SDGs for generating sustainable livelihood. In this regard, four thematic areas have been identified which have direct and indirect relations with sustainable livelihood generation like poverty, gender, social enterprises and environment.
The event will bring together renowned academicians, bureaucrats, development organizations, faculty and students to reflect, understand and discuss the possibilities for sustained action towards a sustainable future
We announces Poster Competition for undergraduate, post graduate and doctoral students, on the topic “Innovative Solutions for Sustainable Livelihood”. The participants are requested to clearly indicate a real-world sustainability related problem along with innovative solution to this problem. The assessment will be based on:-
- Clear identification of the problem;
- Innovation and originality of the proposed solution;
