  • Prioritisation and Localisation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
           Challenges and Opportunities for Bulawayo

    • Abstract: Cities are engines of socio-economic development. This article examines and provides insight into the extent of localisation of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) using the City of Bulawayo (CoB), in Zimbabwe, as the case study. The key question posited is ‘Does Bulawayo demonstrate potential for sustainable development'’. Bulawayo is a strange case study as in the period of the Millennium Development Goals Zimbabwe had a massive increase in death rates from 2000 to 2010 due to the HIV pandemic, political chaos and economic disintegration of that period. Coming out of that period there was little to help cities like Bulawayo grasp the opportunity for an SDG-based development focus. However, after the paper creates a multi-criteria framework from a Systematic Literature Review on the localisation of the SDG agenda, the application to Bulawayo now generates hope. The city is emerging from the collapse of the city’s public transport and water distribution systems, once the envy of and benchmark for many local authorities in the country, and has detailed SDG plans for the future. Bulawayo now serves as a planning model for localisation of sustainable development goals.

  • Compatibility of Eco-Friendly, Sustainable Living with Urbanization: A
           Case-study of The Art of Living International Center near Bengaluru

    • Abstract: In the past few decades, urban growth in most parts of the world has disregarded sustainable practices, contributing to a myriad of global problems. With 68% of the global population projected to reside in urban areas by 2050, it is essential that we espouse and implement effective sustainable solutions immediately. This study focuses upon the smart sustainable practices adopted at the international headquarters of The Art of Living near Bengaluru, the ‘Silicon Valley of India’. Situated in a rapidly urbanizing area barely 20 kms from the busy metropolis, and characterized by a large floating population that varies from 3,000-6000 visitors per week, apart from almost 2000 residents, this bustling community has lush green cover, extremely rich biodiversity and excellent air quality. Some of the sustainable practices adopted here include permaculture, efficient waste management, moving towards the use of clean energy, etc. This paper posits that this unique community exemplifies the possibility of creating an ‘oasis of sustainability’ in the arid desert of urbanization.

  • Mainstreaming Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into Local Development
           Planning: Lessons from Adentan Municipal Assembly in Ghana

    • Abstract: The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were adopted in September 2015 represent a challenging worldwide action plan that aims to end poverty, achieve gender equality, in diverse dimensions, promote decent work among others. Global realization of the SDGs by 2030 is highly dependent on the localization and effective implementation of the goals, yet little is known about diverse perspective of SDG localization and challenges involved. It is in response to this that the study examines the magnitude to which SDGs have been integrated into local development planning using Adentan municipal as a case study. A qualitative method with an in-depth interview of 20 key informants was adopted. The study developed a conceptual framework which was used to examine Adentan municipal Assembly on SDG mainstreaming. The study also did a critical analysis of the medium-term development plan of the municipal assembly to identify how the Assembly has effectively mainstreamed the SDGs at the local level. The findings from the study revealed that the authorities are aware of the SDGs. Majority of the targets in SDGs (1,2,3,4,5,6,8,9,10,11,13,14,16 and 17) have been integrated into the local development plan of the Assembly. However, SDG 7 and 15 were of no interest to the municipal. The findings further indicated that financing, low awareness of the relevance of the SDGs among the citizens in the municipality and bureaucracy are the major challenges of SDG mainstreaming at the local level. The study proposed a framework which extends the theory of change on effective SDG mainstreaming and can be added to other existing framework on SDG mainstreaming at the local level to address the challenges and needs of SDG mainstreaming for development initiative and may inform future research in mainstreaming and planning.

  • Institutional Barriers to Climate Change Adaptation in Burkina Faso: How
           could We Go around Them'

    • Abstract: Despite the existence of a National Adaptation Plan to climate change (NAP) in Burkina Faso, operationalizing adaptation still face a number of challenges. The current study focused on identifying institutional barriers to the strategic objectives of climate change adaptation (CCA) using a literature review and semi-structured interviews conducted with key stakeholders / resource persons involved in the implementation of the NAP. The results revealed a weak collaboration between the NAP steering institution and the ministerial departments covered by the NAP. This situation, first, hampers the implementation of adaptation actions and secondly, the monitoring reporting and verification of adaptation initiatives. Further, the analysis revealed that lack of financial resources poses constraints to many actions that were to be taken by the steering institution and therefore creates poor ownership of the NAP by the main stakeholders that should be actively involved in the NAP process. To cope with the various constraints, it is necessary to have strong political support in many aspects. For instance, it was judged that institutionalizing the role of climate change (CC) focal point within the ministries and embedding NAP monitoring and evaluation (M&E) objectives and indicators with existing functional M&E systems in the sectorial ministries will ease CCA actions integration in operational plans, their implementation and documentation. Moreover, it is relevant to have a continuous capacity building plan to keep stakeholders updated on climate change issues as this will support them in their mandate of mainstreaming CC into ministerial operational plans and lead to optimal CCA implementation and monitoring.

  • COVID-19 Solar Disinfectant in Kuthambakkam, India – A Model of the
           Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development in Marginalised
           Communities

    • Abstract: Using the Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development (FSSD) as an analytical tool, this work examines the sustainability decision making in an Indian village. Kuthambakkam – through the efforts of Elango Rangasamy – has become a site of value for understanding how sustainable development concepts can be applied successfully in an actual developing world scenario. The FSSD, including the concepts of ‘The Funnel’, back-casting and the principle based definition are used to analyse the Kuthambakkam case. This identifies how the decision-making process and actions in the panchayat provide a unique and valuable model of leadership for sustainability – with well-being as a goal. A decentralised, solar-powered disinfectant production method pioneered by Elango is the main project that is examined for this article. The model is currently operated by women’s self help groups in several locations within and nearby to the village – including a large scale production at a vital vegetable market. As the priority of the leadership – or end goal of the funnel – is the well-being of disadvantaged people, the results show superior alignment with sustainability principles compared to decisions made by leaders in corporations and the developed world.

  • Integrated Structure and Specific Solutions for Sustainable Development of
           Islands’ Special Economic Zone: A Practice in Phu-Quoc Island, Vietnam

    • Abstract: A success achievement for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires four key elements: Suitable Sustainable Development (SD) model; Feasible policies; Mobilizing resources; and Consensus of the people. Establishment of a simple, common, easy-to-use process or an approach to the building of an SD model would be key importance. This could make it easier for countries or small regions where expertise resource is limited.This paper addresses two main objectives: 1) demonstrate the importance of systematic analyses and the creation of a Practical SD Structure (PSDS) at the first stage of an SD study; and 2) perform complete research at a selected pilot area, using it as the practical basis to establish component models for individual aspects of SD.This work selects Phu Quoc Special Economic Zone as a case study. It approaches three strategic goals for SD to build a comprehensive process from setting up a procedure for the creation of a visualized PSDS, identifying targets for SD, challenges, key partners, to ultimately providing analyses and practical solutions for SD issues.The results demonstrate that while only the SDGs are relatively homogeneous in different study areas, implementing partners may have similarities, so the identification of challenges, priorities, determination of tasks and responsibilities in interactions between partners is highly variable; The SD model for each specific area always requires systematic analysis. It must be based on practical conditions and pursuing feasibility. The results provide practical solutions, directly applicable to the study area. However, the approach of the work and structure of the models allow flexible application for others.

  • School Leadership for Sustainable Development: A Scoping Review

    • Abstract: Sustainable development within educational institutions encompasses an array of objectives as outlined in Agenda 21 (United Nations [UN], 1992). We recognize in this paper that there are cognate terminologies in the field of sustainable development: Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), Education for Sustainability (EfS), Development Education (DE), and Sustainability Education (SE). As stated in the Education for Sustainable Development toolkit (McKeown, 2002), ESD is the terminology most often employed within UN documents; hence, we also employ ESD because it is the term utilized by UNESCO and at the international level. Thus, we avoid the many debates about these terminologies in this paper. The fundamental interest of this review is to assess the current status of school leadership for sustainable development in the K-12 context. With the help of a scoping review, three literature databases were combed to achieve this purpose. The findings reveal school leaders’ perceptions of sustainable development as well as their motives for engaging in ESD. Our analysis indicates that school leaders vaguely understand the term ‘sustainable development,’ and they interpret ESD from the lens of the environment and society. Thus, the economy component of ESD may be de-emphasized in implementation efforts.

  • Possible Actions in the Built Environment to Enhance Physical Activity:
           Systematic ‎Review

    • Abstract: As a crucial factor of health, physical activity is widely explored in many empirical studies. The problem of how the built environment may affect physical activity attributes was discussed in previous studies, and the classification of interventions was presented in a limited scope. Therefore, the present study aims to review built environment interventions while classifying them into motivators and barriers of physical activity in residential neighbourhoods worldwide. Firstly, the main dimensions explaining how the built environment affects physical activity are presented. Fifteen papers published between 2009 and 2019 were identified by an extensive search in ScienceDirect, Web of Science, Scopus and PubMed. These works were systematically reviewed based on their main characteristics and then classified based on their relevant operationalisation of variables. Improving motivators and conquering barriers of physical activity on neighbourhoods lead to a healthy and sustainable society. The results of the current work can help policymakers and urban planners use exclusive methods for each part of neighbourhood planning and create an environment that overcomes barriers and promotes public physical activity levels.
