About Organizers

Department of Business and Sustainability, TERI School of Advanced Studies (TERI SAS)

TERI School of Advanced Studies (TERI SAS) was established in 1998 to disseminate the vast reservoir of knowledge created by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), a not-for-profit, independent research institute recognized globally for its contribution to scientific and policy research in the realms of energy, environment, and sustainable development. Since its inception, TERI SAS has offered not just world-class education, but also an environment that enables its students to develop fresh perspectives in their subject areas. The academic programmes at TERI SAS are focussed around the challenges of providing for a rising global population with a limited and degraded natural resource base. Our students are provided exposure to a variety of subjects, tools, and methodologies in the interdisciplinary mode for a better comprehension of the sustainability issues. TERI SAS runs MSc, MA, MTech and LLM degree programmes in environmental related areas, such as Environmental Studies and Resource Management; Environmental and Resource Economics; Renewable Energy; Urban Development; Public Policy and Sustainable Development; Geoinformatics; Climate Science and Policy; Water Science and Governance and Plant Biotechnology.

The Department of Business and Sustainability was established with the mission to create a pool of human resources through evidence and research-based learning who would become well trained to adopt an integrated approach to sustainability in management practices. The department has two flagship programmes MBA (Business Sustainability) and MBA (Infrastructure). At the Department of Business and Sustainability, we believe it is our inherent duty to help businesses embrace sustainability at all levels. Hence, the faculty is engaged in both research and consultancy assignments not only with corporates but also with multilateral organizations. At our Department, teaching in MBA programmes is deeply embedded around the research our faculty is engaged in and the findings of this research reach the classrooms in the form of business cases, practical modules, role playing and publications. The sectoral focus of our research engagements is diverse i.e. on infrastructure, energy, textiles, mining, hospitality, agriculture and forestry, oil and gas and health. Through a dedicated team of 25 research scholars, the faculty is undertaking research in areas of business sustainability, CSR, Accounting and finance for sustainability.

National Academy of Agricultural Research Management (NAARM)

The ICAR-National Academy of Agricultural Research Management (NAARM) was established by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research in 1976 at Hyderabad. The major mandate of the Academy is to build capacity in agricultural research, education and extension education systems, and provide policy advocacy for the National Agricultural Research and Education System (NARES). To fulfil these mandates, Academy organises various capacity building programmes for researchers, academicians, extension personnel, scholars, and other stakeholders in NARES. The Academy strives to enhance individual and institutional capacity for innovation in NARES. Considering the strategic importance of agricultural research in food security and economic growth of the country, leadership, governance and innovation are emerging as prerequisite for the transformation of NARES into a more pluralistic innovation system.

National Agricultural Higher Education Project (NAHEP)

The Project supports the Country Partnership Strategy and addresses the three engagement areas of integration, transformation and inclusion. These engagement areas foresee increased agricultural productivity and support quality improvements of higher education to create a more skilled workforce that continuously improves the productivity of key sectors, including agriculture. The proposed Project is also a multi-Global Practice collaboration (Agriculture and Education) and is expected to support activities and results directly related to cross-cutting strategic areas of climate change, jobs and gender.
