SDPI is registered under the Societies Registration Act, XXI of 1860 SDPI provides the global sustainable development community with representation from Pakistan as well as South Asia as a whole. The SDPI’s mission is to catalyse the transition towards sustainable development, defined as the enhancement of peace, social justice and well-being, within and across generations. SDPI’s vision is to be a center of excellence on sustainable development policy research, capacity development and advocacy in Pakistan.
