Sustainable Development

WHY? Who benefits?

Everyone benefits, directly or indirectly, from a better environment - although the very poor, women and children benefit the most.

HOW? Practically, how is it done?

  • First, accept that current development models often fail to achieve goals.
  • Test all proposals by basic sustainability criteria - only accept proposals that satisfy the basic criteria.
  • In project development, pursue a needs-based approach in collaboration - via local field officers - with local communities.
  • Choose local and foreign consultants and staff with - practical, generalist (cross-sectoral) as well as business/commercial - training and experience *
  • Place a Real Premium on working with Local Capacities **

* Ecologists and Environmental Scientists study overviews. Open-minded Economists and Responsible Business Managers take a very wide view. Politicians and Advocates understand the social context.

** Working with Local Skills, Knowledge and Organizational Capacity - facilitates project. implementation and empowers local communities.

WHO PAYS? Now and into the future?

Sustainable Development Projects:
In general, a user-pays solution is most sustainable - although resources over time are required to firmly establish new schemes.

Sustainable Business:
Good CSR in operations, plus community-based projects, ensures sustainability.

VISION? Where does it lead us?

There can only be one sensible vision for the future.
That is a vision of truly sustainable societies.
