Omtale Inclusive Innovation for Sustainable Development
Employing a three-dimensional
approach, this book discusses inclusive innovation for socio-economic growth
and development, and the implications for human security within the context of
developing and emerging economies. Focusing on a new and innovative area of
research, Inclusive Innovation for
Sustainable Development explores new social and technological processes
that are created within, and for the benefit of, marginalised populations.
Considering policy and issues surrounding technology, business strategies and
best practices, theoretical underpinnings and a broader contextualisation, the
authors interrogate the concept of the inclusivity of innovations. Written from
the perspective of the new UN paradigm which states that "no one will be left
behind", the book considers the potential contribution of modern technology to
human security and develops frameworks that counter the potential increases in inequality
that this may bring. With contributions from leading international scholars in
a range of disciplines, as well as practitioners in international development
organizations and private sector actors Inclusive
Innovation for Sustainable Development provides a way forward for excluded
majority populations to take control of innovative technologies and business
processes.
