Sustainable development refers to a concept that aims to meet the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It recognizes the interconnectedness of environmental, social, and economic aspects of development.
Sustainable development encompasses environmental sustainability by promoting practices that minimize resource depletion, pollution, and environmental degradation. It also includes considerations for health, emphasizing the well-being of individuals and communities through access to clean air, water, food, and a healthy environment. By integrating environmental and health concerns into decision-making processes, sustainable development seeks to achieve a balance between economic development, social equity, and environmental protection.
