TERI-Media Colloquium on Environment Sustainability

Colombo, 24 August, (

The Energy & Resources Institute (TERI) will be hosting the 2016 edition of its flagship programme, World Sustainable Development Summit (WSDS), formerly known as Delhi Sustainable Development Summit (DSDS), in New Delhi on 5-8 October 2016.

According to a press release from the Indian High Commission in Colombo -

Ranked globally as one of the five most impactful think tanks by the International Center for Climate Governance, TERI has convened annual international summits on sustainability since 2001. DSDS has been one of the most successful forums in the developing world to deliberate on the challenges and approaches to sustainable development. Till date, DSDS has attracted nearly 46 heads of state, 13 Nobel laureates and ministers from over 60 countries, and numerous captains of industry and thought leaders from civil-society.

This year’s endeavor aspires to attract greater talent and expertise, and assumes critical significance in the background of the adoption of Sustainable Development Goals and signing of the landmark Paris Agreement.

WSDS 2016 will be hosted in New Delhi, focusing on the theme ‘Beyond 2015:

People, Planet and Progress’. It will be among the first international summits to chart a road map for implementing activities to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and objectives outlined in the COP21 agreement signed in Paris. The Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi has been invited to inaugurate the Summit on either October 5 or 6, 2016. Please find more details of the WSDS at
