The South Asia Sustainability Hub & Knowledge Network (SASH&KN), which aims to develop a growing network of institutions and people committed to exploring pathways to sustainability in South Asia, was launched in Delhi on 28 January 2016. The economist Nitin Desai, the environmentalist Sunita Narain and the writer P. Sainath spoke during the event.
SASH&KN aims to act as a resource for policy makers, civil society and educators in South Asia to respond to critical sustainability questions for the region. These challenges include people’s responses to ecosystem, livelihood and health challenges; diverse science and technology possibilities; regulatory and governance mechanisms; and the role of knowledge and science in pointing towards sustainable futures.
The South Asia Sustainability Hub & Knowledge Network (SASH&KN) is hosted by the Transdisciplinary Research Cluster on Sustainability Studies (TRCSS) at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).
