Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of thepresent without compromising the ability of future generations tomeet their own needs. In other words, we ha…ve to live our lives (using water,electricity, coal, oil, fossil fuel, carbon dioxide, greenhousegases) in such a way that our children and our grandchildren andall the generations coming after them will also have the samechance of living a sustainable life. It follows then, that we have to make serious changes to ourlifestyle in the very near future, or there will be a very unhappyfuture for our children and grandchildren. We cannot keep going theway we are. The Bruntland Report (1983) was the first publication andrecognition of what the popular term "Sustainable development". Itoutlined 4 key figures. The main focus being " meeting theneeds of the present without compromising the needs of thefuture". It also talks about social justice, futurity and economic growth. A: Sustainable development can be defined as a development that meetsthe needs of the presents and still take the future generations inminds. A: A sustainable development is a where economy, society and theenvironment all balance out and can agree with each other so thatit is fair for everyone. A: Sustainable merely means that you can keep it up for generations.It is normally used with reference to the environment. As anexample, cutting trees for wood is sustainable if you don't cuttrees more quickly than they grow back. If the rate of cutting ishigher than the rate of growth, there will at some point be no moretrees - this is not sustainable. The same goes for hunting, fishingetc. - a sustainable rate is one where there will still be fishwhen our grandchildren grow old. A: In the context of industry, sustainable normally means that theindustry doesn't pollute so much that people eventually won't beable to live or grow food in the area. A: . Sustainable development means development without sacrificing the needs of the futuregeneration. . Sustainable development is an organizingprinciple for human life on a finite planet. It posits a desirablefuture state for human societies in which living conditions andresource-use meet human needs without undermining thesustainability of natural systems and the environment, so thatfuture generations may also have their needs met. . Refer to link below for more information. Sustainable development refers to development that can continueover a long period of time. Sustainable development takes intoconsideration environmental issues and embraces conservation.Sustainable development is when the use of resources by humans isaimed to ensure the sustainability of the environment while meetinghuman needs.
The essence of sustainable development is to ensure that theenvironment is conserved. Embracing alternative sources of energyand waste management are among some of the things …that promotesustainable development.
ANSWER by BipolarAttorney 02/07/08 Sustainable development is a term that refers to development that is environmentally conscious. There are numerous factors taken into acco…unt, including but not limited to: geographical development of the site, choice of building materials, energy conservation and waste reduction and recycling. Another related issue is the idea of "green design," which is somewhat analgous to "sustainable development."
Development that meets needs the of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Sustainable development is about creating everlasting emprovement through the provesion of ecological, social and economical combination in which will continue providing the i…mprovements and enhances the quality without an end of that. Alternative explanation: Sustainable development is an approach to meeting our present needs without compromising the needs of future inhabitants of the earth. The goal is to maintain a good and healthy lifestyle for as many people for as long as possible - potentially forever. Examples would be: Not using easy or cheap industrial processes that pollute the air or water when better less harmful processes are available, not destroying endangered eco-systems just because they are handy to present development, extracting new materials from ore at the expense of power and resources when recyclable materials are available. Tools in the pursuit of sustainable development are understanding the total impact of decisions, avoiding waste production, avoiding over consumption, appropriate conservation of resources against future needs, reclamation of damaged ecosystems, identification and use of renewable energy and material resources, energy and material reclamation and recycling, adopting lower impact lifestyles.
I think the correct answer to be said is , Preserving things as well as using it. eg. using water as well as saving it.
There are three elements that are central to sustainabledevelopment. These are namely the environment, society, and lastlythe economy.

1. suppose a particular country is quite developed we would like this level of development to go up further or at-least we maintained for future generation. 2. since the seco…nd half of the 20th century the no.of scientists have been warning that the type of levels of development are not sustainable. 3. ground water is an example of renewable resource. but if we use more than what is replenished by nature then we would be overusing this resource. 4. once the nonrenewable resources would be exhausted we wont be able to use in near future. so using the resources judiciously will help in maintaining the sustainability of our development of our economic system.
lots of ways especially logging because it brings lots of money to the countries economy but the locals loose out and animal habitats are destroyed
'Sustainable development' means finding ways of reducing the need for more resources.
well it looks like you havnt gotten an answer so far so i suggest surfing the web of prefixes and suffixes that should show you what you need to know
Many of these changes can be summarized in the phrase "sustainable development." The case of sustainable development is appearing more and more frequently in discussions of co…mmunity economic development.
theyre taking small children and making them work for many hours in a cardboard box.
That's because we have been too greedy...Humans have not anticipate the consequences of their act..We live in an environment that was not possibly going to last forever(big cr…unch theory)..However, our desire to have more of everything has accelerated its damnation..Sustainable development is the solution to prevent the extinction of humanity.We need these developments for food, energy, water crises among others
because it uses hydroelecticity to create a sustaianble source of energy
