The challenges of sustainable development need timely solutions. To make our surroundings more habitable, we need an environmentally sound, economically viable, and inclusive society. Therefore, the 6th International Conference on Sustainable Development, 2023 (6th UIU-ICSD 2023) is focused on the theme, ‘Towards a Livable Society.’ This conference creates room for scientists, policy makers, academicians, development professionals, activists, and students to share practical solutions towards achievement the SDGs. Consequently, the conference intends to create a well-grounded research-based platform to contribute to policy decisions while confronting the sustainable development challenges in national, regional and international spheres. The conference is organized by the Institute of Development Studies and Sustainability (IDSS), United International University (UIU), Bangladesh in collaborations with national and international NGOs, foreign diplomatic missions in Bangladesh and knowledge institutions.
Additionally, the conference will facilitate debate, dialogue and discussions on long-term plan for sustainable development with a focus on Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100. The conference will provide the [Bangladesh] Delta Forum, which is the outcome of previous ICSDs of UIU, with rooms/organized sessions to discuss, debate, share opinion, idea, criticism, and suggestions on Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100 implementation through the participation of universities, research organizations, implementing organizations, civil society forums, and policy people. This activity will facilitate the process of knowledge generation and sharing towards strengthening ‘Science-Policy-Practice Interface’ in reference to the scope, opportunities and limitations of the Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100.
