Book Description Penguin Books India, 2011. Softcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. 14 x 21 cm. Target 3 Billion: Innovative Solutions Towards Sustainable Development talks about the many difficulties that rural societies face. These places are often ignored in terms of infrastructure like roads, transportation, and electricity. The authors then talk about how a group of passionate people, or even an individual, can bring change in a short period of time. They discuss how Fabio Luiz de Oliveira Rosa managed to transform a rural region in Brazil by giving the people access to good water supply and electricity. The authors also describe how a community owned region of 400 acres, the Magarpatta village, was transformed into a modern township with an IT Park. They also introduce the Bhadariya village, which was a wasteland in the middle of the Thar Desert. Bhadariya posed additional challenges, as most of the villagers were addicted to alcohol, tobacco, and other substances. The head of the Bhadariya Ashram, Baba Bhadariya Maharaj, initiated a cooperative program that first began as a campaign for de-addiction of the local people. Once the people were back to their senses, they improved their environment by digging tube wells, planting trees, and practicing methods for water conservation and irrigation. Soon the place was transformed, and became rich with cultivable lands and herds of cattle. Target 3 Billion: Innovative Solutions Towards Sustainable Development also concentrates on PURA (Providing Urban amenities in Rural Areas), a programme initiated by Kalam when he was the President of India. The book discusses how this model could significantly help improve the infrastructure of villages, and provide them with fundamental necessities like water and electricity, as well as other requirements such as roads and transportation. The role of technology in development is also explored, as they talk about how Information Technology could be used to provide access to better education and other knowledge in remote areas. This book makes it apparent that the integration of rural economies is essential for achieving sustainable development of the country as a whole. Printed Pages: 323. Bookseller Inventory # 93266

Book Description Paper Back. Book Condition: New. (Size: 22 x 14 cms), More than 3 billion people live in villages around the world today, in underdeveloped and developing nations, and also in some parts of the developed world, lacking basic amenities and resources, in conditions that are often deplorable. There are major disparities between living conditions in urban and rural areas, which are typically manifested in the differences in income levels and available facilities, and in the quality of life as a whole. This underutilization of the talents of half the world's population is not only a massive waste of opportunity but a serious human development issue and a concern for the sustenance of prosperity and peace globally. xxiii+300 Verify ISBN for International Edition; Year of Publication 2014 0143417304.
