Stategic approach to SD
Sustainable Development

Development responds to the present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.

Note: Sustainable development aims to combine the goals of a high quality of life, health and prosperity with those of social justice, while maintaining the earth's capacity to support life in all its diversity. These social, economic and environmental objectives are interdependent and mutually reinforcing. Sustainable development can be seen as a way of expressing the broader expectations of society in general.
