Product description

In Global Health and Sustainable Development Architecture, Wang discusses the convergence of such problems as financial crisis, water, food and energy shortage, earthquakes and disasters, epidemics and pandemics, wars and nuclear threats. "What is wrong with our development model?" "What is the solution?" This book aims to answer these questions by providing an alternative model to conceptualize sustainable development. The Inclusive Sustainable Development Theory disputes the conventional "winnership" model that supports unlimited expansion and materialism in global development. Instead, it focuses on inclusion and sustainable peace as the cornerstone of sustainable development. The Hexagon of Partnership Model highlights the importance of inclusive dialogue, partnerships, and community capital in carrying out global sustainable development endeavors that protect global food, energy, and water security.
