Podcast Series on 'Taking SDGs to the Last Mile' in collaboration with Centre for Climate Studies, Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE)
The Sustainable Development Goals was initiated in 2015 by the Member States at The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development. Six years since the SDGs were launched, how have global & local economies adopted these goals? Unfortunately, a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic has pushed back progress on many of the goals by decades. As these goals become more important than ever before, how can economies and governments at all levels accelerate their efforts in reaching these goals?
In order to address one of the primary concerns of taking SDGs to those who are most in need, The Bridge Project brings to you a series of podcasts under the theme- ‘Taking SDGs to the Last Mile’. We are delighted to collaborate with the Centre for Climate Studies at the Manipal Academy of Higher Education for this podcast series.
More than half of the world's population live in cities and by 2030, it is estimated that six out of ten people will be city dwellers. Cities have always been the engines of economic growth fueled by the continuous rural to urban migration. However, the capacity of our cities have touched alarming levels with respect to the demand and availability of resources & space. In this context, sustainability needs utmost attention from all stakeholders of society.
To discuss the ‘Action on Cities and Communities’, we are joined by Dr. Arunabha Ghosh, CEO and Founder of Council for Energy, Environment and Water and Melissa Smith, Principal Architect and Urban Planner based in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
The discussion was moderated by Dr. Dhanasree Jayaram, Assistant Professor and Co-coordinator of the Centre for Climate Studies, Manipal Academy of Higher Education.
