About SDG Conference
PWDC is proud to announce its hosting of a major Conference in October 2017. This Conference, entitled LOCALISING THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDGs): LEAVING NO ONE BEHIND , will bring together people from across the Asia Pacific region to share experiences, ideas and plans for progressing achievement at a local level in relation to the recently announced global SDGs.
This Conference is forged in the idea that partnerships will be integral to our mutual efforts in meeting SDGs, and it is therefore appropriate that the Conference is organised by PWDC in partnership with the Penang State Government, the City Council of Penang Island (MBPP), the Municipal Council of Seberang Perai (MPSP), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Penang Institute.
