Over the years, the Sudanese Diaspora across the world has given rise to a large body of literature that has mobilized the interest of scholars on a wide range of issues relating to the Diaspora both within the Sudanese community and internationally. In this context, the role of the Sudanese Diaspora in technology transfer and achieving sustainable development (SD) in Sudan has been discussed and documented in the first International Diaspora conference in 2009.
This book includes the best papers presented during the 2nd Sudanese International Conference of World Association for Sustainable Development (WASD), hosted by SPRU – Science Policy Research Unit at the University of Sussex, Brighton, United Kingdom in the period 11th to 12th June 2015. The different chapters selected have tremendous scope in both focus and source, covering a broad geographical spectrum from across the world focusing on how we can manage knowledge effectively to achieve a sustainable inclusive growth in Sudan.
The main objective of the Diaspora conference is to provide a forum for researchers, professionals and scholars of diverse interests and backgrounds to engage in discussions on innovative approaches to the challenges facing the future of Sudan and the Sudanese Diaspora across the world. The conference brought together intellectual and practice-based contributors who have examined the concepts of science and technology as an innovative approach to achieve a sustainable inclusive growth in Sudan. Participants also explored the full range of Sudanese Diaspora across the world in charting the way forward.
