Reduction in public and private spending on social programmes throws up further challenges for the sustenance of development efforts. This book advocates countering this trend through 'global social entrepreneurship' and the use of innovative, inexpensive, and locally customized solutions. Using in-depth and contemporary case studies, it demonstrates how to define, measure, and achieve socially and environmentally sustainable growth. It inspires social entrepreneurs to build new models of sustainable growth, to scale existing solutions, and to create new public-private partnerships.
