SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT 2 Sustainable development (SD) is a kind of development that meets the present needs and ambitions without negotiating the aptitude of future generations to satisfy their own needs. Therefore, SD is the organizing factor that maintains limited resources needed to avail and vend for the needs of the future generations. Sustainable development provides the desirable future state for states and communities in which the use of resource and living standards/conditions continue to satisfy human needs without dejecting the existence, stability and beauty of natural systems. Sustainable development is made up of two words; sustainability, which refers to the practice of preserving resources for future use without destroying nature and other constituents of environment, development, on the other hand is the systematic use of technical/scientific knowledge to meet certain goals. SD puts together the need for carrying capacity of naturally occurring systems with the changes in social community, economic and political spheres. This development is described in terms of several dimensions that include ecology, equity and economy or social, economic development and environmental, however, a fourth dimension of culture has also been developed. The issue of economic development proves to be the most problematic dimension as opposed to political ideology. Economic development is concerned with developing businesses and organizations by providing incentives, and enabling these businesses to abide by the guidelines of sustainability that are an addition to the normal legislative requirements. This development also enhances and boosts incentives for normal individuals to develop themselves economically, rarely does an individual on his own achieve much, however, when grouped, they can reap a lot of achievements. Therefore, environmental development aims at providing people with what they require without affecting the quality of life and lowering their financial burdens.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
