9th Diaspora International Conference
from seriously off-track to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2030
28-29 December 2020
All efforts will be made to organise the conference in Khartoum, Sudan but as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic, we are also making full plan for the conference to be organised remotely via video conference technologies. In doing so, the World Association for Sustainable Development (WASD) will use the latest technology in video conferencing (Zoom) from London with participants from all-over the world connecting from homes. This multi-disciplinary conference is part of our Diaspora International 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 their countries of origin efforts to achieve a sustainable future. For more details watch presentations from our previous events. This exciting conference will bring together international experts and high level International Diaspora (students, researchers, practitioners, policy-makers, ordinary citizen) from the public and private sectors to share their strategic vision on the future of Sudan and how the Diaspora can contribute to help their countries of origin achieve a sustainable and inclusive SD. The conference will analyse the status quo of the development strategies in Sudan and the current challenges facing the country to achieve Agenda 2030 as well as the different dimensions and perspectives of the likely future opportunities for Sudan particularly after the USA lifting its economic sanctions from Sudan.
