UN divides 17 Sustainable Development Goals under six interconnected themes namely poverty, health & wellbeing, education ,skills  jobs, a safe & fair world, sustainability & environment. UN suggests that all the goals are equally important and countries or organizations should achieve all these goals. Since 17 SDGs & 169 targets are so broad & cover so many targets tackling them all simultaneously may be very difficult. Therefore it is important for countries & communities to think carefully on which they will prioritize & which they will tackle later as they build capacity & experience. SESD identifies 38 targets from 17 SDGs & will expand its work once we additional resources & capacities are built. Participants are requested to submit abstract/papers on these areas.
