Sustainable development is the organizing principle for meeting human development goals while simultaneously sustaining the ability of natural systems to provide the natural resources and ecosystem services based upon which the economy and society depend.
The desired result is a state of society where living conditions and resources are used to continue to meet human needs without undermining the integrity and stability of the natural system.
Sustainable development can be defined as development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs (Wikipedia).
The components involved in generating Sustainable development are: Planet, People, Prosperity, Peace, and Partnership.
Our cluster is looking to generate partnership between academics, researchers and professionals that are developing studies under the goals of the sustainable development.
