TERI-NA's colloquium series titled 'Global partnerships for sustainable development: harnessing action for the 21st century' is an effort to examine the dynamics of the nexus between globalization and sustainable development. This book documents the proceedings at the first colloquium in the series, which by focussing on 'Renewable energy technology development and implications for poverty alleviation' helped crystallize a better assessment and understanding of the role of technology in development and poverty removal. It also highlighted, for the benefit of global corporations, the longer term business opportunities in areas where they would be operating in future. The high-level deliberations by the outstanding speakers and participants from government, business, academia, and civil society manifest themselves as this valuable compilation of presentations, discussions, and broad conclusions, which needs to be disseminated on a large scale to maximize the benefits of such an effort.
