About this series
This series examines sustainable development in various countries in Asia, using a common framework with which to explore social, economic and environmental regulations and practices such as water pollution and consumption, income inequality and healthcare, and biodiversity. In each Palgrave Pivot book of about 30,000 words, we explore the sustainable development frameworks of two countries, laying out their progress in this area and comparing the two to highlight policy recommendations.
The consistent sustainable framework applied to each country allows us to examine and compare sustainable development sub-topics across countries, and to clearly note the gaps in progress among countries. The common framework also allows us to highlight, among countries, which policies and experiments have been most successful.
