Conference Venue: Multimedia University of Kenya, Nairobi, Kenya

The world needs proper strategies to ensure sustainable development so that future generations find the world a better place to live. Global environmental changes brought about by degradation and effects of climate change, destruction of forests, increasing desertification, war and conflicts, migration and terrorism have combined to lead to clamour for sustainable development. The destruction of carbon sinks and water towers have made sustainable development more urgent given the manner in which uncontrolled exploitation of resources has led to serious effects on the globe. Why has sustainable development become critical in the world today? What are the causes of climate change and how do they affect the quality of life on earth? How have various governments and the international community responded to effects of climate change? What are some of the efforts being deployed in saving the globe against effects of climate change? What are some of the efforts being made by various academic disciplines to address this? These are some of the issues that the conference will be seeking to address.
