Future strategic vision for SUDAN sustainable development 

Thursday 20th – Friday 21st June 2019, International Maritime Organization (IMO), London – UK 

The aim of this two-day conference is to ensure that Sudanese Diaspora groups are involved in the development and review of policies that impact on the future of Sudan. They are consulted with regard to the objectives and desired outcomes of the policy, and the best means of achieving them.

This exciting conference will bring together international experts and high level Sudanese Diaspora (students, researchers, practitioners, policy-makers, ordinary citizen) from the public and private sectors to share their strategic vision on the critical situation in Sudan and how the Diaspora can contribute to help Sudan achieve a sustainable and inclusive sustainable development (SD). The conference will analyse the status quo of Sudan uprising and the current challenges facing the uprising to achieve its objectives as well as the different dimensions and perspectives of the likely future challenges and the changing global paradigms.

For Sudan to succeed in the future, Sudanese youth must be equipped with all necessary skills and capabilities to mange and adapt to future challenges. We therefore encourage the participation of youth in the debate and we are keen to make their voices heard and consequently enabling the decision makers to consider those views and ideas in their big decisions.

It is hoped that the conferences will be a good opportunity for all Sudanese diaspora to reflect on their knowledge and experience for Sudan’s efforts to achieve SD. New perspectives on how these can be improved to better serve their goals will be developed. The conference also aim to learn lessons from the successful communities across the world.

Sudan Sustainable Development Directory

Sudan Knowledge (SK) is a global forum that brings together people from across the world to discuss key issues relating to SD in Sudan. This multi-disciplinary conference is part of our Sudan Knowledge Diaspora Conference Series aims to provide the participants the opportunity to share their knowledge and experiences from all over the world on major global issues; the emphasis is on the importance of evidence-based planning to overcome the challenges facing Sudan’s efforts to achieve a sustainable future. For more details watch presentations from Sudan Knowledge’s previous events. We also hope these conferences will help in our efforts to build a comprehensive SD directory for Sudan. Sudan Sustainable Development Directory (SSDD) includes a strong network of researchers, policy makers, educators, consultants and employers from all parts of the world to exchange knowledge and experience and discuss current developments and challenges. SSDD can be used to help find, support and collaborate with experts from the SK network.
