Centre for Sustainable Development Solutions

Centre for Sustainable Development Solutions (CSDS) focuses on the most pressing sustainable development challenges of the region and their diverse social, economic, environmental, political and cultural dimensions and its interlinkages.

CSDS works to mobilise regional and local resources of expertise to promote practical solutions for sustainable development, including the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement.

The local chapter of the CSDS is co-hosted by EduCARE India and InSustainedFutures in partnership with a local organisation.

It aims to mobilize academic institutions, research centres, civil society organizations, businesses, government offices and other knowledge centres to focus on practical problem solving for sustainable development.
