Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) implemented within the framework of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), in other words, Global Goals, aims removing poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring that all people live in peace and prosperity. The concept of sustainable development has become one of the priority targets of the states with UNDP.
These SDGs, no poverty, zero hunger, good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, industry, innovation and infrastructure, reduced inequalities, sustainable cities and communities, responsible consumption and production, climate action, life below water, life on land, peace, justice and strong institutions, and partnerships for the goals are closely related with each other.
When we look at the problems that the modern world is struggling now and goals and services that are allocated for them, the waqfs realized these services in the past. Especially in Ottomans, the waqf institution is the locomotive of the development.
The waqf had been a pioneer in the foundation of many new cities, in the renovation of cities, in the spread of social assistance, in the maintenance of economic activities, in the fair distribution of prosperity.
The symposium will be held on July 14-15, 2018 in İstanbul hosted by Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University (IZU) that works for making Istanbul as finance center of world and the most important institution on Islamic economics and finance in Turkey, and organized by the cooperation of Silk Road Civilizations Research and Application Center and Ankara Center for Thought and Research (ADAM). The theme of this year is Waqf and Sustainable development.
