Bangladesh Summit on Sustainable Development (BD Summit)

This summit is a culmination of the combined efforts, achievements, lessons learned, and collected knowledge from previously organized consultative meetings in all divisions of Bangladesh, national convention of civil societies in 2013, a side event in New York during the UN General Assembly meeting, and Global Conferences on Community Health in 2013 and 2014.

In 2012, Eminence along with partners organized the first Global Meet on Sustainable Development (GM4SD) 2013, Dhaka, Bangladesh with the theme “Determinants of Sustainable Development: Road to Rio +20’ during 16-17 May in Hotel, Dhaka. Around 250 national and international participants attended that gathering and a position paper titled ‘Measurable Health Indicators and Sustainable Development: What We Expect From Rio+20’ was produced by the Civil Society of Bangladesh, as the key outcome document. The outcome documents was subsequently conveyed at the main event of Rio+20 in June 2012.

Followed by the first GM4SD the first National and Regional Congress on Sustainable Development was held during January-­February, 2013 in Bangladesh. The congress was organized jointly by Eminence and the Citizens’ Forum on Sustainable Development, Bangladesh and other partners. This congress was organized to pave out the ways of the second GM4SD. Staged by Eminence and the Citizens’ Forum on Sustainable Development, Bangladesh to address other major issues of sustainable growth, this meet resulted in a position paper titled ‘Dhaka Declaration.’ This international partnership document supports a South-South allegiance toward rights-­based programming for adolescents and vulnerable populations, universal access to sexual and reproductive health, and other cooperation and partnerships for health based initiatives, gender mainstreaming, advocacy frameworks, and climate change negotiations.

Based on this legacy of activities, the Bangladesh Summit on Sustainable Development 2014 provides an opportunity through a collaborative gathering of international experts, donors, partners, and concerned citizens to discover pathways that can attain the sustainable development goals (SDGs) more comprehensively and competently. This event enables participants to collectively explore adoptable approaches within developing countries for achieving the SDGs; the event invites discussion on feasible and attainable options for confronting new and emerging development constraints. In addition, the conference will be a space for peer learning and mobilization to empower concerned actors to take informed initiative to face development challenges in the post-­2015 era.
