DIMAPUR — The Department of Economics, St. Joseph’s College (Autonomous) Jakhama, organised a national seminar on ‘Sustainable development: Prospects and challenges,’ at the college Auditorium, on Friday.

More than 50 speakers and educators from various academic disciplines across the country spoke during the seminar, which was attended by staff and students of the organising department, the college stated in an update.

The seminar was held with the objective to spark conversation and educate the students about sustainable development and its various facets in India and the Northeast.

Lt. Col. Sunil Kumar of Chakabama Military Station, the special guest speaker, who spoke on the topic ‘Indian Army and nation building,’ highlighted the importance of nation building and how the Indian army contributes towards social integration and security.

Commissioner, Government of Nagaland, T Mabemo Yanthan, was the guest of honour, while Prof. Giribabu M, head of department (Economics) of Mizoram University, Tanhril, was the keynote speaker.

Yanthan, in his address, highlighted the importance of such a seminar to inspire ideas. Dwelling on the various sustainable growths in terms of the economy, he was of the opinion that the skills of local people, combined with the power of local social networks, resources of public, and private resources and stories of “our shared lives” are the building blocks of social and economic sustainability.

Prof. Garibabu M spoke on the untapped resources of sustainable development in the Northeast region and Nagaland and also highlighted the issue of people not engaging themselves in the benefits offered by the banks. He further dwelled on the various challenges to the sustainable growth of India.

After the inaugural session, the technical sessions included an array of speakers tackling various topics including the path to sustainable development, rural tourism, gender inequality in achieving sustainable development in the southern Angami region and coverage of health insurance.
