A collection of twenty-three research papers read at the Sustainable Development Policy Institute’s Eighth Sustainable Development Conference held in Islamabad, this anthology examines the multiple facets of sustainable development in the context of South Asia. Following five major themes-gender issues, livelihoods, WTO and governance, health and environment, and peace and human rights-academicians, activists and policy-makers from South Asia and other parts of the world, discuss issues of sustainable development in an era of globalization, and debate how these problems and issues can be dealt with effectively at various levels based on prior experience of successful policy intervention elsewhere. The anthology is a joint publication of the SDPI and Sama Editorial and Publishing Services, Karachi. This is the seventh anthology being published in the series of Sustainable Development Conference anthologies.
