AJSD Volume 4 Number 2 | 2014

This edition of the Journal contains 12 peer-reviewed papers. The papers cover various aspects of sustainable development including, micro-financing, political economy, education, local empowerment, leadership and gender issues, natural resources management, and environmental sustainability. The researches were conducted in Nigeria, Kenya, and the United States of America.

We received many manuscripts, both solicited and unsolicited. Some of the papers were presented at the fourth annual Ibadan Sustainable Development Summit (ISDS) held in August 2013. The review process was thorough and all contributors were involved. The current rejection rate is 20 percent (that is, one out of every five manuscripts submitted for consideration was rejected). We hope to sustain the standard and quality of the Journal.

Again, we like to thank the contributors for the opportunity to share their research work in sustainable development issues through the AJSD. To our reviewers, collaborators and patrons, especially the financial support of the John D. and Catherine MacArthur Foundation, we say
