Dr Pachauri addresses the media invitees on upcoming Sustainability Summit – “Changing policies & Human Behaviour”
The 13th edition of TERI’s widely popular DSDS is all set to witness focused discussions among global leaders on resource-efficient growth, climate change and protection of natural resources. Indian PM, Dr. Manmohan Singh, will be officially raising the curtain on the DSDS this year. Pushing the agenda for sustainable growth, the Summit aims to provide an efficient platform for thought leaders and policymakers to discuss effective policy mechanisms to reduce energy and resource footprint. The Summit seeks to not only build a global consensus to protect natural resources, but also to explore innovative solutions to boost efficient practices and minimise unsustainable consumption patterns.
