Joy Bhowmik participated on the the conference on role of universities in achieving SDGs by the Association of Commonwealth Universities, UK.
Universities are playing a significant role to the SDG agenda through the operations in curriculum, teaching & learning, students, staff & community engagement and research & communication. Moreover, universities are pioneer in capacity building, advocacy and creating evidence from the field. Also act as catalyst in monitoring the progress of the SDG agenda that helps the decision makers to review and modify the actions of activities. In this regard, strong partnerships among different universities, governments, development agencies and private sectors may reduce the barriers to the operations of universities and would strengthen the capacity to contribute to the SDG agenda. Universities contribution in global and local arena will ensure that no one will be left behind to the global SDG agenda.
