The idea of sustainable development encapsulates the reduction of vulnerability of the human condition, poverty and welfare issues, social justice, and environmental protection, as well as economic growth and equitable distribution of its gains.
For SD to be meaningful it must encompass all issues about science, innovation, technology, research and development, information technology and e-commerce, economic development, health, Foreign Direct Investment, Multinational Corporations, international debt, aid, trade, politics, war, natural disasters, population growth, terrorism and so forth. The responsibility for achieving sustainable development is global and rests on both the developed and the developing nations. Therefore, we must think globally but act locally. We must also ensure that we pass on to future generation at least as much environmental wealth as we inherited.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][/vc_section]
