All Path-Breaking Initiatives
Inspired by the TISS vision to reform and transform the development sector through ‘reimagining futures', the TISS AESDII, incubated at the National CSR Hub, aims to build social sector infrastructure and a cadre of development professionals in India. The primary objective is to create a professional, accountable, analytically driven, people centric pool of development sector organisations in India through applied knowledge advisory services in the domains of programme development, policy, advocacy, evaluation and capacity building.
The TISS AESDII aligns its work to the SDG 17 and advocates inter-disciplinarity, collabo- ration, convergence, evidence and results-based programming and organisational learning. TISS AESDII aims to build perspectives and skills of development stakeholders through creation of knowledge and partnership networks, tools and templates on alter- native ways of thinking, learning and doing social welfare. TISS AESDII attempts to move beyond a narrow discussion on mere social responsibility of corporations, through facilitation of multi stakeholder conversations, with a focus on ‘Partnerships in Action.’ The TISS AESDII has in its network UN agencies, Public Sector Undertakings, Private Sector, Government Departments, Academic Institutions and Civil Society Organisations, at a Pan India level.
