Description: 

This course uses case studies and analytical models to examine the management of strategic resources – natural and manmade – essential to sustain the economic potential and steady growth of developing nations. Effective and efficient management systems that have been demonstrated to enhance the sustainability of developing countries are reviewed and analyzed.   Special emphasis is given to environmental stewardship. Options and processes for institutionalizing sustainability are examined and ranked for adaptability in developing nations short on financial assets. Top best practices are delineated for identifying, mitigating, and managing municipal, hazardous, toxic, medical and human wastes that are deadly threats to environmental sustainability. The course combines individual research assignments, case studies, and presentations that challenge participants to propose sustainable business ventures for reuse of wastes, while catalyzing entrepreneurship, growing revenues streams, and promoting trade.
