How can sustainable development be achieved in the face of persistent and rising inequality both within and across countries? This volume enumerates the challenges to achieving sustainable development, with a particular focus on questions of inequality both within countries and transnationally. With contributions by international experts, the book reviews innovative development strategies and examines policy measures and programme initiatives which may halt or reverse inequality. The book is global in coverage, with chapters examining problems and policy responses in Africa, Latin America and South Asia. Aimed at policy makers in national governments, development analysts in international organizations and research institutes and think-tanks , this book is a key contribution to the UN discussion on the post 2015 sustainable development agenda.
