IBA was represented at the “Global Goals for Sustainable Development” round-table conference on 2nd October, 2015 at the Mövenpick Hotel, Karachi. The event was jointly organized by UNILEVER and Standard Chartered to allow the exchange of ideas and best practices between different active players in the social development sector of Pakistan to accomplish the Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

Dr. Aadil Nakhoda (Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics and Finance) and Dr. Tiago Ferreira Lopes (Assistant Professor at the Department of Social Sciences & Liberal Arts) represented IBA at the event and contributed their ideas and experiences to the discussion. IBA was the only university in Pakistan represented at the round-table conference.

The Global Goals for Sustainable Development are an important component of the United Nation’s latest agenda (that will be formally active in January 2016, once the Millennium Development Goals Agenda expires) to tackle multiple issues that include reducing extreme poverty, increasing health and education, and combating climate change.
