13-15 October, 2022
University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh (ULAB)
After a 2-year gap due to Covid-19 Pandemic, The 5th CSD Annual Conference on
Sustainable Development 2022 will finally take place in person! This interdisciplinary
and transdisciplinary Conference is organized by CSD-ULAB, and like in past years,
will bring together local and international experts from across the globe to explore the
most pressing and nexus issues relating to the Sustainable Development Agenda. The
focus of this year’s conference is on a number of interconnecting issues - climate
change, blue growth, equity, migration, well-being, and resilience. This Conference
offers a transdisciplinary space for academics, practitioners, and students working on
transformations towards sustainability to come together in dialogue and practice.
The changing climate of our current world poses challenges to practically every domain of human society, from food security to health and well-being, and prosperity. It remains a challenge how measures taken to strengthen the capacity of society to adapt to a warming world can simultaneously carry forward the wider Sustainability Agenda enshrined in the Sustainable Development Goals. Most pressing among these concerns is the need to manage and govern our natural resources in a way that promotes equitable outcomes, ensuring that the poorest and most marginalized groups, including women and minorities, can access the resources they need to reverse the entrenched exclusion that continues to make them the most vulnerable to a changing climate. This is among the most wicked of wicked problems, and constitutes a vital and wide-ranging research agenda for the decades ahead, both in Bangladesh and across the world.
