Book project co-edited by Dr. Sadik-Zada

Dr. Elkhan Sadik-Zada and Dr. Andrea Gatto have published an edited volume on Bio, Circular and Green Growth in Developing Countries. The book project has now been published.

This book project titled "Frontiers and Best Practices in Bio, Circular, and Green Growth and Eco-Innovation" accommodates contributions on the novel business models, technology advances and public regulations that are favorable for the development of a circular economy and green economic growth in the developing economies, and in the structurally challenged areas within the industrialized world. The positive examples make clear that the frontiers of circular and bio-economy development, and green growth are by no means confined to economically advanced countries. This means that developing economies do not have to repeat the inverted U-shaped income–environment relationship and enter the carbon-saving sustainable growth and development track commencing from the initial phases of economic modernization. The positive examples in this book project show that the pathways to sustainable development in the Global South are real. There is, however, no guarantee that developing countries would join them. To assure this, advanced countries must rethink their international development cooperation and enhanced development policies in the realm of international climate action.
