The World Sustainable Development Summit (WSDS) is the annual flagship event of The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI). It has in its journey of eighteen years become a focal point for global leaders and practitioners to congregate at a single platform to discuss and deliberate over climatic issues of universal importance. The Summit series has emerged as the premier international event on sustainability which focusses on the global future, but with an eye on the actions in the developing world which could bend our common future.

The WSDS has continued the legacy of the Delhi Sustainable Development Summit (DSDS) which was initiated in 2001 with the aim of making ‘sustainable development’ a globally shared goal. The Summit series has over the years brought together 47 heads of state and government, 13 Nobel laureates, ministers from 67 countries, 1600 business leaders, 1800+ speakers and over 12,000 delegates from across the world. Possibly the sole Summit on global issues taking place in the developing world, WSDS now strives to provide long-term solutions for the benefit of the global community by assembling the world's most enlightened leaders and thinkers on a single platform. An overview document with key highlights of the 2019 edition of the Summit is enclosed for your perusal. 

The dates and theme for the next WSDS have been identified. It will be held from January 29-31, 2020 at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi, under the broad rubric, 'Towards 2030 Goals: Making the Decade Count'. (http://wsds.teriin.org/).
