The UN defines sustainability as 'meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.' At CSTEP, sustainability is all about striking a delicate balance between economic development and environmental concerns. The needs of today should not compromise the demands of tomorrow. Our approach is guided by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and we strive to create a platform that promotes knowledge exchange between interdisciplinary stakeholders and shares best practices to ensure capacity building. We work on developing scientific frameworks to generate evidence-based policy interventions in circular economy, rural economy regeneration, and other initiatives to ensure a sustainable and secure future.
