The International Conference on Sustainable Development (ICSD) provides a forum for academia, government, civil society, UN agencies, and the private sector to come together to share practical solutions to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 7th annual ICSD received over 650 abstracts for the parallel sessions on the 24th and is confirming several high-level speakers for the plenary on the 25th. The organizers are the Global Master’s in Development Practice (MDP) and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN).
MDP is an interdisciplinary graduate degree program that prepares students to better identify and address the challenges of sustainable development. MDP programs generally consist of two years of coursework in four intersecting disciplines—health, natural, social, and management sciences–combined with cross-sectoral field training.The SDSN aims to accelerate joint learning and help to overcome the compartmentalization of technical and policy work by promoting integrated approaches to the interconnected economic, social, and environmental challenges confronting the world. The SDSN works closely with United Nations agencies, multilateral financing institutions, the private sector, and civil society.
This event is part of the National Government Policy and Commitment program of Climate Week NYC.
