Sustainable Development

Sustainable Development stands for meeting the needs of present generations without jeopardizing the ability of futures generations to meet their own needs – in other words, a better quality of life for everyone, now and for generations to come. It offers a vision of progress that integrates immediate and longer-term objectives, local and global action, and regards social, economic and environmental issues as inseparable and interdependent components of human progress.

Sustainable Development ties together the concern for the carrying capacity of natural systems with the social challenges, and conceptually, the field of sustainable development can be broken down to two constituent parts Environment and social responsibility.
