Ultimately, the aim of this book is to improve readers’ knowledge and understanding of how TT concepts and frameworks can be better applied in addressing Sudan’ socio-economic and development challenges in an inclusive and sustainable manner. The book puts together, for the first time, original and cutting-edge contributions aimed at illuminating and charting new directions for researching, teaching and understanding of this subject matter.
