Book Blurb: The Sustainable Development Goals, role of governments in providing visionary and accountable leadership, women empowerment, inequitable access to water resources and how it can lead to both conflict and cooperation, monetary policies and how they impact inequality and can either reduce or increase poverty, the complex trinity between energy, climate and the environment in a multisectoral context, are major concerns of development practitioners and peace activists everywhere.
This book aims to unpack the key elements of the peace-sustainable development nexus, and examine it in totality at the micro, meso and macro levels. Organised into four parts, namely, A Panoramic View of Sustainable Development in South Asia; Securing Economic Sustainability; Water Governance; and, Dynamics of Social Justice, the authors bring in country perspectives from Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Nepal, Bangladesh, USA and the UK. One of the key lessons this collection offers is that monetary policies that provide social protection and ensure access to basic services to the disadvantaged and marginalised groups, beyond their human and ethical value, contribute directly to sustainable economic growth, political stability, peace and security.
