The challenges of modern world are huge and complex with unequal development, rising population, diminishing natural and climate change. While there is a plethora of technical solutions, the question is whether the best of the best technical solutions have always worked? The need of the hour is to have leaders who can see the interconnectedness between various issues and take a comprehensive approach as their move forward and for this to happen, capability development through relevant and continuous capacity building programs are important. The United Nations FAO recognizes capacity building as a long-term, continuing process with focus on a series of actions directed at helping participants in the development process to increase their knowledge, skills and understandings and to develop the attitudes needed to bring about the desired developmental change. Offering a set of diverse capacity development programs, both technical and non-technical, we engage with varied sectors and people to build LEADers as catalyst for change.
LEAD in India was incubated in TERI and CREED in the early years. Subsequently it was registered as LEAD India in 2000. We adopted the international mandate to develop leaders of a new generation with skills and knowledge to support sustainable path.
