Sustainable Development

Sustainable development (SD) is a pattern of economic growth in which resource use aims to meet human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for generations to come (sometimes taught as ELF-Environment, Local people, Future).

The truth about e-tolls. If you know anything about the government policies of Sustainable Development, National Development Plan 2030, Smart Growth / Smart City and the World Bank publication titled “Development in Practice: Sustainable Transport – Priorities for Policy Reform”, you will understand that e-tolling forms the backbone of these policies and will never be shut down or abandoned. The review panel was set up to JUSTIFY e-tolling according to these policies and was never set up to shut e-tolling down. The only way this is going to end is through civil disobedience.

Its all bout about control. Unfortunately this is but a small issue of the global power grab, For example : Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment. Agenda 21, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the Statement of principles for the Sustainable Management of Forests were adopted by more than 178 Governments at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janerio, Brazil, 3 to 14 June 1992. The Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) was created in December 1992 to ensure effective follow-up of UNCED, to monitor and report on implementation of the agreements at the local, national, regional and international levels. It was agreed that a five year review of Earth Summit progress would be made in 1997 by the United Nations General Assembly meeting in special session. . ...

U N I T E D N A T I O N S N A T I O N S U N I E S SECRETARY-GENERAL -- MESSAGE ON WORLD TOILET DAY 19 November 2014 One out of three women around the world lack access to safe toilets. As a result they face disease, shame and potential violence when they seek a place to defecate. A staggering 1.25 billion women and girls would enjoy greater health and increased safety with improved sanitation. Evidence also shows safe and clean toilets encourage girls to stay in school. We have a moral imperative to end open defecation and a duty to ensure women and girls are not at risk of assault and rape simply because they lack a sanitation facility. That is why the theme for this year’s World Toilet Day focuses on “Equality, Dignity and the Link Between Gender-Based Violence and Sanitation.” Addressing the sanitation challenge requires a global partnership. This is especially crucial as countries work to formulate a sustainable development agenda for the period beyond the year 2015. Meeting the goal of ...

Food and Depopulation (Part 1 of 4) Posted: June 29, 2010 in De-Population 5 by Cassandra Anderson The purpose of this article is to give a brief outline of how the elites, and the Rockefellers in particular, are using food as a weapon. Since the Rockefeller family came to power (especially after gaining a monopoly in 1914 with Standard Oil) they have manipulated our government into ruining our financial system by way of the Federal Reserve, energy through oil dependency and food with GMOs (Genetically Engineered Organisms). The intention is to rob us blind and kill us. It’s time to wake up. The official name of this program is Agenda 21 Sustainable Development. It the overarching blueprint for depopulation and total control over America and the rest of the world. There is no question that Americans are targeted for depopulation: GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) food has saturated American farmlands. GMOs are dangerous and the proliferation of corn crops (used as sweetener, animal feed, processe ...

Matthew in Question Period - Do Conservatives Believe in Climate Change? Friday September 19, 2014 Mr. Matthew Kellway (Beaches—East York, NDP): Mr. Speaker, earlier this week we found out that the government is no longer working on the oil and gas regulations it has been promising for seven years. Also this week, the International Institute for Sustainable Development said that the Conservatives' coal regulations will have a “negligible effect”. So much for the Conservatives' vaunted sector-by-sector approach to greenhouse gas reductions. Now the Prime Minister is skipping the UN Climate Change Summit in New York next week. Is this incompetence or do the Conservatives not yet believe in climate change?

Ten Reasons for Parliamentarians to Engage in National Evaluation Policy Process Parliamentarians have vested interest in the country in giving vision, leadership and to gear the country in right direction. The vision and right direction should be informed by evidence. Parliamentarians are the first pillar to approve/ allocate resources for development initiatives in the country through parliamentary procedures. Therefore parliamentarians should be well informed with up to date information about effective initiatives and development programmes through evaluation so that resources are wisely invested in the country. Parliamentarians have the opportunity and authority to supervise and question progress of any development initiative/ use of public funds in the country. Therefore relevant data and information are useful to properly monitor the progress through the Parliament. Parliamentarians are the key in making legislation and policy in the country. It is important that policy and legislation is evidence b ...

To End Poverty, Act on Climate Climate change threatens to undermine the United Nations' progress in both of its critical missions -- peacekeeping and development: Hardship often leads to conflict, and the worsening impacts of climate change are causing hardship. That is what makes the UN Climate Summit on September 23 so important. Our development investments will fail if farmers no longer get rain or if floods wipe out their village; if ocean acidification decimate the fisheries on which coastal communities rely for their food and livelihoods; and if rising temperatures cause malaria and other vector-borne diseases to increase and spread to new areas. Some argue that we need to address poverty first and worry about climate change later. This is just plain wrong. As UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says, "Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth -- these are one and the same fight." Or, as his friend and colleague, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, has put it: "Climate ...

Top 8 things PM Narendra Modi said at BRICS summit 1. Terming the agreement towards setting up BRICS's New Development Bank a significant step, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said an open international trading regime is critical for global economic growth.

As football teams and their hoards of fans head for Brazil, sustainability is perhaps not at the top of their thoughts… Without becoming sustainable, many tourist destinations fail to thrive and often perish, according to a research paper published in the International Journal of Environment and Sustainable Development. The study's authors Ana Lucia Magalhaes of the State of Sao Paulo Technological College in Brazil and colleagues point out that, "Tourism brings significant impacts, physical, economic and cultural, with important positive and negative aspects." They have investigated the subject with a case study on the Brazilian tourist destination of Cunha. The town represents a unique part of Brazilian history, located between the gold mines and the Rio de Janeiro harbour, it was home to bands of gold thieves in the early 18th century.
