About the Book: Target 3 Billion: Innovative Solutions Towards Sustainable Development
Addressing current issues that affect development, former president of India Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam and visionary Srijan Pal Singh have written an eloquent, inspiring book. Delving into the ways and methods of eradicating poverty, the two have placed before the reader some very persuasive and thought-provoking arguments.
There are nearly 3 billion people, about 40 percent of the world's population, who live below the poverty line. They have no access to basic amenities like food, clean water, health services or education. In this thought-provoking book, Bharat Ratna awardee Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam lays bare the ideas and theories he has been working on for decades to combat this humanitarian crisis and presents some useful solutions that he has conceived based on his vast experience. Singh and Kalam have written a detailed list of the various ways that a developing or developed country can fight poverty. Dr. Kalam also selects inspiring examples of entrepreneurs and individuals who have helped change the society we live in. With many great insights and eloquent writing, this book is a must read to understand how sustainable development can benefit a whole country like India from its villages to the metropolises.
