INDEX tellings….

Take a look at this back matter and perhaps you will identify a keyword, phrase, or even a name, that can interest you to look further into the contents of a manuscript like this one.

CALL for Chapters – Environmental Sustainability in Developing countries: Towards 2030

**REFER ATTACHED DOCUMENT FOR MORE DETAILS**

call- book chapters-environmental sustainability2030-bw case study

This book will be published by Springer Nature as Open Access content.

The 2030 Agenda was conceptualized at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in June 2012 and has 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) together with 169 targets and at least 230 indicators. The SDGs are aimed at shaping public policy, achieving resource sustainability as well as guiding the development of human beings in their geographic setting.

Publishing state of the environment data for an African country like Botswana provides opportunities for easier monitoring of the 2030 sustainable development goals. It also provides a platform for engagement of various country and regional stakeholders who, as a group, can subsequently be encouraged to engage in the monitoring of the 2030 Agenda. However, this exercise is often the preserve of official government reporting, rather than a wider stakeholder engagement.

This publication will provide a new approach that encompasses contributions from government, academia and the wider environmental players of a country like Botswana. Contributions with a focus on southern Africa and/or Sub-Saharan Africa are also welcome.

The topics covered in this volume will be deliberately diverse to allow for a variety of
stakeholders to contribute in this important topic, at a country level. Contributions with a focus on southern Africa and/or Sub-Saharan Africa are highly welcome.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Authors wishing to contribute are invited to submit abstracts and book chapters, taking into account the deadlines indicated below. As already highlighted, the authors can choose any topic related to the SDGs, in particular those targeting the environment and sustainable development dimension. Submissions by a diverse group of stakeholders working in collaboration are
encouraged.

More information will be shared with selected contributors during production process.
 Please send your contribution(s) to the following email: sdgpub-bw@ub.ac.bw

Youth and Heritage in Africa: Hit song on Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania by youths

Newest hit entitled “Africa’s heritage”, created to celebrate the African World Heritage Day! – Ngorongoro youths under the leadership of Dr Elgidius Ichumbaki (University of Dar Es Salaam).

 

Hit song by youths on Ngorongoro heritage – Celebrating African Heritage

It is important to find ways to engage youths in heritage via their own media, not the way adults understand heritage.

This video illustrates one creative way to do this

Enjoy the melodies
