In the context of development, the construction industry: New Viewpoint
This is a truly international analysis of a topic of global interest, with contributions from prominent academics and practitioners from Australia, China, the Netherlands, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, and the UK. In the context of the construction industry in developing nations, the most insightful and pertinent recent research on topics like the Millennium Development Goals, the informal construction sector, human resource development, technology, finance, and social change is discussed. Other important aspects of the construction industry’s growth are taken into account, including the establishment of institutions, the training of contractors and consultants, and the promotion of industry development programs.
Even though the difficulty has increased and the requirements have become even more pressing, the research that has been conducted up to this point has rarely provided solutions that are effective. This is a timely, up-to-date study that sheds new light on a variety of concepts and issues by focusing on the aspects of the construction industry that are most crucial to development.
Students, professionals, and researchers interested in the construction industry in developing nations should read this. This book’s companion volume will be interesting to readers; Construction in Developing Countries: Current Issues
