AFD 15th international research conference ” Strong Sustainability : How sustanable are Net Zero development trajectories ? “

The conference is part of a cycle of conferences organized by AFD on a biennial basis to address key development issues such as common goods, inequalities and development financing.

In an era of increasing global crises in several areas – health, environment, finance – and increasing civil society mobilization for a just and equitable transition, the question of the operational coherence of the MDG framework, development trajectories and their (in-) sustainability have risen to the heart of many political debates.

The 15th International Research Conference marks a milestone in the reflections around this concept. Its multidisciplinary program is structured around three principles of strong sustainability that aim to guide the elaboration of trajectories: non-substitutability between capitals, multidimensionality and the social construct. This event is composed of two academic days and one policy day that will combine academic insights, testimonies and recommendations to the public and private sector to better address political, environmental, economic and social challenges in the field of development.
