AJSD Volume 9 Number 1 | 2019

It is our pleasure to announce the publication of Volume 9 number 1 of the African Journal of Sustainable Development. In this edition, we have published a total of fifteen interesting articles from diverse subjects ranging from economics, sociology, biodiversity, energy, waste management and climate change. A central theme of all the articles is sustainable development.

We are delighted that the journal has continued to receive very high patronage with the rejection rate still standing at barely 20 per cent despite the high number of articles received. Similarly, we are glad that since its inception the journal has been published regularly.

We sincerely thank our reviewers for turning in the reviewed articles within the stipulated time despite their busy schedules. We appreciate our contributors especially, for considering AJSD as a viable research publication outlet for their research work.
