  Brief About Summit
Historically, sustainability has been a way of living. With the intent of progressing and developing the world, extensive use of resources took place and newer interventions were made to enhance the rate at which the advancement was happening. The effects of climate change became apparent soon thereafter in terms of rising temperatures and frequent incidences of natural calamities. Climate change discussions began way back in 1979 when the First World Climate Conference was conducted in Geneva and was sponsored by WMO and soon it became a global agenda and several national and international conferences were conducted to tackle the ever-increasing effects of climate change. As a result of all the environmental mayhem, the sustainable development goals (SDGs) were set and came into effect in January 2016

The Summit shall serve as a platform to deliberate innovative technologies and solutions which shall help in creating robust mechanism for developing sustainable solutions for the benefit of the entire community.
