Call for papers: Global Conference on Prosperity, Equality and Sustainability | Proposals due Jan 31
April 25-27, 2016New Delhi, India

In 2015, the international community adopted a set of 17 ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, ensure prosperity and equality for all, and tackle climate change by 2030. With rising inequalities, there is a need for immediate global action, “a plan equal to the challenge”, as World Bank Group President Kim once stated.

This call for action requires focus on global and national policies that consider the needs of the most vulnerable and excluded populations. In this context, the World Bank, in partnership with the Institute for Human Development (IHD) will host a two-day Global Conference in New Delhi to address the core issues of promoting shared prosperity and social inclusion through the right mix of strategies and policies. The Global Conference on Prosperity, Equality, and Sustainability: Perspectives and Policies for a Better World will take place in New Delhi, India on April 25-27 2016.

Papers and panel proposals should be submitted online by January 31st at http://www.ihdindia.org/pesconference/
