    TERI, North Eastern Regional Centre (TERI-NE) organised an interactive session titled, 'Synergising Efforts Towards Achieving Sustainable Development Goals 2030' at its Guwahati campus recently. The discussion primarily revolved around the challenges in achieving the goal of sustainable development through the SDGs-2030 and the initiatives undertaken in different sectors towards achieving the same. The discussion concluded with a general consensus that, SDGs-2030 cover every sphere of life, and that they are elaborate in nature and one individual department or organisation on its own cannot attain the ultimate goal of sustainable development. Every stakeholder - public, private and community - has a role to play and it is only through concerted efforts that one can progress towards sustainability.
