What is Sustainable Development?

Sustainable Development means "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." ["Our Common Future", 1987, the World Commission on Environment and Development]

The goal of sustainable development is to strike a balance between the needs of the environment, society and economy in order to maintain a quality standard of life for both present and future generations.
