2024 CU-CKS Conference Program.docx


Most of Asian growth has been, and will continue to be, driven by urban centers. Asia is moving into an era of unprecedented urbanization, a change bringing prosperity and problems. Asian cities are growing rapidly. Another 1.1 billion people will live in the region’s cities in the next 20 years. By 2030, more than 55% of the population of Asia will be urban. In many places, cities will merge together to create urban settlements on a scale never seen before.

In the Global world that we are living today we have the interplay of political, economic and social forces that promote and prevent social and environmental justice. These include people’s struggles for wellbeing and sustainability and the visions that inspire them; and the roles of state, society and market actors. Also, the need of the hour is transcending geographical binaries of Nations, and looking into areas of complementarity and between inter-sections of economic development, social innovation, human well-being and environmental sustainability. Towards this outcome, initiating transboundary collaborations, strengthening global to regional networks, establishing interstate relations, and setting up robust communities are vital. Hence, this rapid urbanization is not without its challenges as it has implications on important issues such as city congestion, water/air quality, poverty, rising inequalities, urban-rural divide, citizen security and safety.

The Conference will combine skills and knowledge of international development with an in-depth focus on social justice, wellbeing and sustainability. It will endeavor to bring in perspectives from international relations through a reflective lens on international treaties and agreements, and transboundary initiatives in this area of interest.

In this context, this conference is an attempt to bring together different countries, and proposes to establish a network to synergise these efforts and, thereby contributing to a sustainable global Community-building. Cross-country or cross-regional participation and engagement will encourage a dialogue that can help ideate policy avenues and pathways to address international and regional issues that can ultimately foster strong inter-state relations.

This conference is envisioned as a collaborative platform where different countries from Asia and beyond (with room for expansion when it matures) – work towards the common goal of smart and technology-driven sustainable urban development. This initiative aims to strengthen connectivity and cooperation among Indo-Pacific nations to promote peace, stability, and prosperity in the region. Its primary goal will be to improve the lives of global citizens, using technology and social innovation as an enabler. 

Aims and Objectives: 



The precise goals of this Conference is to encourage and support Cross-Country, Cross-University, multidisciplinary research collaborations between faculty and practicing professionals of sciences, social sciences and humanities background, along with students with faculties as mentors - specific to matters of relevance to all the partnering countries.

This seeks to advance:
