This path-breaking book investigates the challenges of realising the Asian century. Prosperity in Asia does not only mean economic growth, the issues of public health, sanitation, income equality, social safety net and efficient use of natural resources are also important. It argues for new policy initiatives in social, environmental and natural resource areas of South, Southeast and East Asia. This insightful volume is presented in three parts: part I identifies the major socio-economic factors which are likely to take away the opportunities in realising the Asian century by 2050; part II presents the responsible policy issues which would be needed to overcome the hurdles such as public finance, natural resources, public health and sanitation, intra Asia migration and decentralised governance; part III articulates major challenges in realising the Asian prosperity including sustainable international business and sustainable growth. The topics examined are ranged from demographic conditions, tax reform to responsible use of natural resources in the years to come. The Asian Century, Sustainable Growth and Climate Change will appeal to academics in the fields of Asian studies and environment ecology. The major challenges in the future for South Asian growth due to the impact of climate change will prove invaluable for practitioners and the policy-makers.
