TARAgram Yatra: Inspiring Sustainability in Policy & Practice
Development Alternatives, a non-profit organisation established in 1983 creating large scale sustainable livelihoods is hosting TARAgram Yatra 2010, an annual event organised with the mission of inspiring sustainability in policy and practice.
This year’s focus, “Towards Green Economies – scalable solutions for people and our planet”, cuts right to the heart of contemporary public dialogue and resonates through every feature of Development Alternatives (DA) efforts to promote and facilitate sustainable human development for the poor and the underprivileged.
TARAgram Yatra 2010 promises to be a milestone in a series of global multi-stakeholder consultation process leading up to Rio+20. The dialogue is being organised by Development Alternatives in partnership with the Green Economy Coalition (GEC), the Ring Alliance of Policy Research Organisations, International Institute for Environment, Development (IIED), Nehru Memorial & Museum Library (NMML) and Department of Science & Technology, GoI. The Yatra will aim to build consensus amongst key stakeholders on prioritised and sequenced issues in the transition to sustainability. It will communicate strategies and solutions that address sustainability challenges to policy audiences on a global platform.
TARAgram Yatra will bring together top-level practitioners and policy makers from India and overseas to share current thinking on removing poverty, regenerating the environment and ensuring a decent life for our children. With a mix of dialogue and field visits, the five-day meeting will explore the key elements of strategies that can deliver economic results now without undermining social or environmental goals later. The events on the first and last days will be organised in New Delhi. The detailed dialogues and field interactions from 18th to 20th September will be at TARAgram – DA’s Resource Centre in Orchha, Madhya Pradesh.
Date: 17th to 21st September 2010
