Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of current generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. In this context, environment and natural resources are capital that must be maintained in order to support sustained economic activity. Protecting the environment thus preserves the very basis for development. Environmental sustainability refers to the need to protect biological and physical systems that support life (e.g. ecosystems, the hydrological cycle and climatic systems). Environmental sustainability is one of the cross-cutting issues which needs to be integrated across all areas of decision making. This requires development planners to assess the environmental impact of all proposed policies, programmes and projects, and to take action to minimize the adverse environmental impacts and to take advantage of opportunities for environmental improvement.
