Sustainable development


Sustainable development is defined as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
It is about reconciling 3 worlds: the economic, the ecological and the social. In the long term, there will be no development possible if it is not economically efficient, socially equitable and ecologically tolerable.
