The topic on constrained environments and sustainable adaptations was drawn from an idea that the tropics faced significant and unique challenges shaped by geo-climatic conditions converging with the way communities have adapted. Most studies embrace multidisciplinary approaches to adopt a more compartmentalized and yet rich epistemological understanding of a phenomenon to a closely related discipline. Very few journal articles and books in the area of business and societies in the tropics focus on the different types of constraints and their sustainability strategies.Hence, this book is meant to drive the agenda to address issues that emanate from different parts of the tropics and enhance our understanding of the challenges and mitigation efforts made by business organizations and leaders as well as ordinary people and as a nation.
