Peace and Sustainable Development in South Asia: Issues and Challenges of GlobalizationPeace and Sustainable Development in South AsiaJointly published by the SDPI and Sang-e-Meel, the latest SDC anthology was launched at the Twelfth Sustainable Development Conference on 21 December 2009. This anthology aims to familiarize the reader with various dimensions of sustainable development in the context of “peace and globalization”. The volume contains selected papers (after a thorough peer review and editing process), presented during the Eleventh Sustainable Development Conference (2008) of the Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI). It addresses a diverse range of issues such as food security, climate change, natural resources management, cost of conflicts in South Asia, conflict resolution through trade, rewriting history, energy sharing, etc.
