Collaboration for Sustainability and Innovation: A Role For by Diego A. Vazquez-Brust, Joseph Sarkis, James J. Cordeiro

By Diego A. Vazquez-Brust, Joseph Sarkis, James J. Cordeiro

A variety of arguments are made through a world team of authors during this notwithstanding frightening ebook approximately an understudied and socially very important context. A destiny during which monetary wealth transfers around the North-South divide from richer to poorer nations is much from adequate for the comfort of poverty and the pursuit of sustainability. warning has to be taken while progress is completed in the course of the liquidation of the traditional wealth of poorer countries, in an effort to hold a world monetary establishment. Neither poverty aid nor sustainability will eventually be accomplished. The monetary cave in and social upheaval that will end result will take advantage of fresh fiscal downturn glance trivial via comparability. what's extra urgently wanted as a substitute, as argued during this ebook, is collaboration for sustainability and innovation within the worldwide South, specifically construction on versions initially constructed within the South which are transferable to the North. In pursuit of a sustainable and extra equitable destiny, the e-book examines such subject matters as Cross-Border Innovation in South-North reasonable alternate provide Chains; strength toxins Prevention courses in Bangladesh; electronic Literacy and Social Inclusion within the South via Collective Storytelling and Eco-innovation on the ‘Bottom of the Pyramid’. a lot of those tales and feature no longer been advised and want better visibility. The booklet contributes in a meaningfully to the dialogue of ways innovation and sustainability technology can gain either side in South-North innovation collaborations. It offers precious advent to the subjects, in addition to beneficial evaluations and most sensible practices. This back-and-forth movement of rules and innovation is itself new and promising within the smooth pursuit of a good and sustainable destiny for all areas of our planet.

The authors’ particular interests are in reviewing the outreach activities of its Local Network model, specifically, the policy dialogue and partnership facilitation developments for the Asia Pacific Country Network based in India. Global Compact Local Networks (GCLNs) established themselves as formal entities ready to support and facilitate, through tool provision, learning events, and local engagement, the implementation process of UN principles. One important area of GCLN activity is the facilitation of partnerships with UN GC stakeholders, as GCLNs often provide a unique convening platform for cross-sector engagement.

G. Simon et al. 2003; Termeer et al. 2010). However, the literature has also emphasized how challenging it is to implement sustainability-oriented projects involving cross-border partnerships and/or knowledge transfer. g. Bradley 2008; Islam and Anwar 2012; Ahmad 2001; Koehn 2012). The achievement of satisfactory results depends on a number of factors that might well be overlooked by collaborating partners. For instance, knowledge transfer from north to south is hampered when innovation does not fit with local resources and agendas (Koehn 2012).
