Exhibits included

The continual problem of poverty in the developing world has lead many to question the efficacy of economic growth and development as a means of poverty alleviation. Indeed, the lack of convergence in standards of living across countries is one of the great unresolved issues in development and growth economics. On the other hand global economy face significant environmental challenges, from averting dangerous climate change to halting biodiversity loss and protecting global ecosystems. There has been debate over whether it is possible to achieve continuous economic growth whilst also tackling these challenges. In the UN climate Summit 2012, the largest ever climate meeting, leaders clearly demonstrate that economic growth and environmental performance must go hand in hand to protect mankind.

It is very clear that climate is back on the global agenda again after many decades. Apart from that the world passes so many important momentums. World’s super power is shifting to China from the USA and this may be a beginning of new economic era. Further, the year 2015 is going to be important as the entire world will shift from MDG’s to SDG’s.

Hence it will be important to look at the entire scenario and evaluate how far all of these changes is going to impact poverty after 2015, if every country is interested to create a world with “no poverty” and minimum environmental damage, after 2015 the entire world may become livable to everyone.

ICPSD 2015,will be a futuristic conference rather than a traditional conference which evaluate and analyze past. We want to focus on “future scenarios”. The organizing committee of the TIIKM’s 2nd Annual International Conference on Poverty and Sustainable Development 2015,invite everyone to join with this conference and contribute to build a discussion on the post 2015 agenda of economic growth, environment mitigation and poverty alleviation.
