BRICS, entrepreneurship, development


The BRICS encompasses nations with increasing relevance for the world in various dimensions that includes but not limited to the fact that it carries 40 percent of the world population at 3,24 billion people and contributes about US$ 23,4 trillion to the global Gross Domestic Product (GDP). BRICS has opted to operate and make maximum contribution and influence globally through its three pillars of: political and security cooperation, financial and economic cooperation, and cultural and people to people cooperation. Through the work that BRICS champions in these pillars, it is making unparalleled global influence in the spheres of economic, political, social, demographic, and environmental architecture. The primary objective of this special journal issue is to consolidate a wide range of viewpoints and scholarly investigations pertaining to the interplay between climate change, entrepreneurship, local development within the BRICS nations in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, both during and after its occurrence. Policymakers, government agencies, and international organizations heavily depend on robust research findings to formulate and implement policies and programs that are effective in achieving their intended objectives. Research conducted in these specific domains, therefore, has the potential to yield evidence-based recommendations that can effectively reinforce economic growth, promote sustainable development, and foster social progress within the BRICS nations.
