Managing Change for Sustainable Development: A South Asian Perspective

Jameel A. Khader

Abstract—The need of the moment is to understand 'change', the kinds of change that system can absorb the 'good' change and distinguish it from 'abrupt' change which systems cannot cope with. We also need to understand how to increase and sustain the capability of people, economies and nature to deal with change. Countries like India China, Brazil and Mexico which were not the major contributors to the history of world development so far. Rise of China as the 'workshop' of the world, the status which was classically enjoyed by Britain is a special milestone of the recent history of world business. Similarly elevation of the status of India as the 'back office' of the world has similar importance. These new participants in the recent major players of the world development are likely to remain notable players for at least another 50 years, likely to grow rapidly as the two emerging eastern powers on the planet. It is high time for theoreticians as well as practitioners to take a long term perspective on these issues.

Index Terms—Consumerism, development, forestry mental conservation.
