About the Programme

The objective of the GDRC programme on Sustainable Development is to function as a repository of key online information on the theme and help in contextualizing all other programmes of GDRC within the perspective of sustainability.

The transition from Millenium Development Goals (MDGs) to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015 places greater empahsis on sustainability, and provides a logical framework for global as well as local policies. GDRC aims to keep track of this transition through this programme.
