Call For Papers

The First International conference on Poverty and Sustainable Development(ICPSD) 2014 is keen to discuss and examine about widespread public concern. As the world forwarded to year 2015,every one has started to talk about how far the world achieved the Millennium development Goals which has set up in 2000 for coming up 15 years to fulfill 8 simple but meaningful and achievable targets. Most of the countries have achieved sustainable progress in achieving these targets and some countries have achieved all of them or most of the targets. But still most of the governments and policy makers seriously discuss about progress they had achieved against poverty, hunger and disease. With all of these discussion world leaders have set up Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) in Rio+20 Summits to fight against poverty. Sustainable development embraces the so-called triple bottom line approach to human wellbeing. Almost all the world’s societies acknowledge that they aim for a combination of economic development, environmental sustain ability, and social inclusion. but the specific objectives differ globally, between and within societies. Certainly, as yet, no consensus regarding the tradeoffs and synergies across the economic, environmental, and social objectives has been agreed. Still, a shared focus on economic, environmental, and social goals is a hallmark of sustainable development and represents a broad consensus on which the world can build.

With all of the above debates and concerns, ICPSD 2014,Colombo has set up two objective for this Conference. First objective is creating a platform to discuss about the real meaning of sustainable development together with recently set up Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs).This conference may providing opportunity to further debate about policies and decision which has agreed in Rio+20 Summit. Moreover second objective is providing opportunity to researchers, academics and people who are interesting on above public concerns to meet with each others, discuss their own views and opinions and guide those discussions and debate toward positive human mind set to eradicate poverty and achieved sustainable development.

During the conference, we will set up series of activities including key note sessions, posters, cultural show, networking dinner, presentations. We believe you all will enjoy this 2 day conference and you will end up with deep impression about the conference. Also we assure that you could find what you expect to see and experience with ICPSD 2014.
