Sustainable Development Agenda

As we move towards the end of the Millennium Development Goals, the global discourse is inching towards an agenda for development grounded in the three pillars of sustainability. Over the last five years, DA has been contributing to this debate through various reports, workshops, projects focusing on Green Economy and promotion of sustainable livelihoods. In the last two years, as part of the Independent Research Forum (www.irf2015.org), the team at DA, has been providing inputs for what the post-2015 Development Framework could look like.


Some of our interesting work includes:

Managing and Conserving the Natural Resource-Base for Sustained Economic Growth: This  report for the International Resource Panel (www.unep.org/resourcepanel), emphasised the need to mainstream resource constraints in the sustainable development agenda.

Mainstreaming Alternative Perspectives...Towards Sustainable Economies (www.map-sa.net): An initiative led by DA, supported by five other civil society organisations, essentially looks at identifying, documenting and mapping new economy ideas and businesses from within the country, while upholding the principles of sustainable development.

Decoupling and Green Growth: An initiative led by the Indo-German Expert Group focusing primarily on the ways in which we can decouple natural resources from economic growth.

Post-2015 Development Priorities for the South Asian Region: A report prepared by DA, highlights the need to set the agenda for the region, focusing on the needs and strengths of the respective countries.
