While global policy discourse is dominated by sustainable development, in sub-Saharan African countries, sustainable development has remained elusive for many. What is Africa's position on sustainability in the face of war and environmental crises, financial upheavals, resource management, climate change, under-resourced healthcare, and the explosion of population in urban areas? This timely and well-written collection examines the strategies that African nations have implemented to build economic growth, social inclusion and environmental protection. The contributed chapters align with the goals of the global initiative on sustainability and cover all regions of the sub-continent. Through social, environmental and economic foci, the authors examine the links between health, water, climate change, transportation, natural resources, urban design, land use, and economic growth. -- Deborah Pellow, Syracuse University
