Sustainable Development

Speakers cover various aspects of sustainable development. It has been a hugely debated term and concept, and it means different things to different people. Here we use it primarily to refer to an approach to economic development in underdeveloped societies intended to produce growth in living standards while at the same time avoiding levels of resource extraction and waste production that cannot be sustained over the long term.
