What is Sustainable Development?

Developmental issues and challenges are nothing new to most of us; they are all around us, and even affecting us.
The problem is, we do not know enough to take action.
The world is facing unprecedented environmental and socio-cultural challenges never seen before. 
The global community is increasingly having to rise up to face growing developmental challenges.
The United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) show us there is much to learn, and so much to try to understand.  
Nehemiah Pte Ltd seeks to impart knowledge, create new sustainability-related strategies, and to partner with you to achieve the possibilities, push boundaries and challenge the norms or the perceived.
There is so much to do.   
Economic, environmental and social impacts are always around us as we seek progress, to reduce poverty, improve peoples’ lives and the different impacts will always intertwine with developmental pursuits and progress.

836 million people still live in extreme poverty with about one in five persons in developing regions lives on less than

$1.25 per day

Through one of United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs), by 2030, extreme poverty for all people everywhere is to be eradicated.

What is Sustainable Development?

Sustainable development, two words used and seen so very often these days, seem rather less understood or poorly understood. 

Sustainable development is making places better, and improving the lives of people in those places.
That is perhaps one of the simpler ways to explain the two words.

Sustainable development is about a shift in our mindsets, a change in our behaviour and often also means trade-offs.

Developmental challenges can be huge in certain places, and they can also be complex and not easy to come up with solutions.

A lot of difficult and complex decisions often surround sustainable development, and the issue of ethics is what makes decision making complex.

What is making sustainable development more intentional?

Making development more sustainable requires an almost entirely different paradigm shift, in the way we play and work.
Making development more sustainable requires us to also look at trade-offs, compromises and sacrifices.
The UN’s 17 goals to make that happen requires the global community to change the way we think, and that itself is a naturally difficult and complex thing.
If making development more sustainable is about identifying trade-offs, then making sustainable development more intentional is about creating the framework and environment that can manage the implementation of the trade-offs.
Trade-offs need to be managed, for development to be embracing sustainability, easier and greater.
