Sustainability is emerging as a key theme for research in almost all fields of research in contemporary era. Sustainable development is the organizing principle for achieving human development goals. The desired outcome of sustainable development is creating a society where living conditions and usage of natural resources continue to address the human needs without compromising on stability and continuity of the natural ecosystem. However, the dilemma of sustainable development lies in the direct linkage of economic growth and climate change. While faster economic growth may help eliminate socio-economic issues like poverty, inequality, hunger, unemployment and social injustice, it comes with a burden on ecology like over consumption of natural reserves and greenhouse emissions leading to climate change, which in turn is detrimental for human development. The predicament of sustainable development can be addressed by setting up the priority of human development over unsustainable economic growth. United Nations has defined 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) ranging across economic, educational, social, ecological, medical, urban living, and engineering disciplines. The SDGs are specifically aimed to eliminate poverty and hunger, ensure good health and well-being, provide quality education to all, ensure gender equality, provide clean water and sanitation, provide affordable and clean energy, foster decent work and economic growth, development of industry, innovation and infrastructure, reduce social and economic inequalities, encourage sustainable cities and communities, encourage responsible consumption and production, action of climate change, ensure sustained life on land and under water, create strong institutions for peace and justice, and invite partnerships to achieve the goals. The conference focuses on tracks across all these fields specified by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
