The term development is generally used to denote growth or progress. However the term, particularly in last two centuries, has become synonym to economic growth in terms of gross domestic product or the per capita income of the nation. This definition has created a rat race amongst the nations to attain and retain development goals. These goals are often contradictory to the idea of preservation or sustenance of environment. In order to re-build the harmonious relationship between man and nature, world organizations like UN has began the campaign to have a sustainable development.

To conclude it is important to realize that "sustainability" from the standpoint of either the availability of natural resources to meet the needs of the world's population in an equitable manner, or from the standpoint of environmental protection is really two sides of the same coin, i.e. an integral part of the solution to both involves finding ways to limit per capita natural resource consumption in both developed and developing nation and find a way to substitute renewable resources and "waste products".
Verifying, please be patient.
