International Conference “Creating A Sustainable Business: Managerial Implications and Challenges” (ICSBMC-12)
Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur, India
Sustainability is about “adding value” to the businesses with people, planet and good business decisions in mind. There are certain issues of sustainability which have serious ecological, social and economic implications for the stakeholders and the regulators. How to achieve sustainability in terms of business, looking at examples and scenarios, defining a set of guiding principles, and applying them into a business plan, shall be the focus of the conference.
The conference covers 11 themes based on sustainability in various areas for which papers are invited. Eminent speakers/experts from industry, academic institutions (India and Abroad) and government shall address different sessions during the conference.

International Conference on Climate Change, Hydro-conflict and Human Security
The impact of climate change impacts upon hydrological resources has become a security concern, expected to be acute in the Mediterranean and its neighbouring regions. Security implications in this context are usually conceptualised with reference to the conflict potential of hydro-climatic change and in particular in relation to anticipated resource scarcities that may mobilise several conflict channels. However, links between climate and conflict are not readily substantiated, as regularly cooperation trumps conflict in situations of scarcity, abundance rather than scarcity is mostly related to conflict, and socio-political and governance structures are key in producing conflict or cooperation. Contributions from several fields (such as international relations, political ecology, etc.) and new approaches (such as securitisation, double exposure, etc.) point to a more complex picture linking climate change and the social impact of hydrological changes as well as the implications and potential of policy responses, confirming that the long chain between climate change and social impacts is fraught with uncertainty.
In this context, the international conference and high-level policy event “Energy, Water and Climate Change 2012 – Building Bridges between Europe and MENA” (EWACC 2012), which will be held in Nicosia, Cyprus on 10-12 December 2012. Details can be seen at: http://ewacc2012.cyi.ac.cy/
2nd International Symposium on Corporate Responsibility & Sustainable Development
3.1 10-13 April
Guangdong University of Foreign Studies, Guangzhou, China
Sustainable development (SD) has captured our imagination as the rallying call to reconcile many big ideas: the tensions between respect for the natural environment, social justice, and economic development; the long view versus short-term imperatives; the competing priorities of north and south, east and west; the separate agendas of business, consumers, communities, civil society, and government.
The Second International CSR Symposium will explore emerging issues in corporate responsibility and sustainable development. Presentations and debates will highlight current thinking and how these issues are being addressed around the world. Further details can be seen at: www.cr-sd.org/index.php/syposium/symposium
