Round Table Forum
Sustainable Development for Sustainable Peace
Killing and arson in Karachi have attained highly alarming proportion and absence of peace is badly ruining the industry, trade and culture of the metropolitan, and panic has gripped the city. According to the reports of Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry, annually 316 units are closed in Karachi and more than 500 people get unemployed. The violence in Karachi is a manifestation of poor governance and social inequalities. Sustainable peace cannot be achieved without sustainable development. Similarly, it is unlikely that sustainable development can take place in a climate dominated by mistrust and violence.
In order to assess the prospects for both peace and sustainable development in Karachi, SPO plans to organize a Round Table Forum ”Sustainable Development for Sustainable Peace” on 23rd September (from 10.20 to 1.00 hrs) at Pearl Continental Hotel, Karachi.
