Economic development is not a blessing for the human beings. No doubt, it brings higher material welfare by increasing national output of goods and services on one hand and on the other hand it pollutes the environment badly by overuse and misuse of natural resources. ADVERTISEMENTS: In the course of economic development, the cost of environmental damage in the shape of deforestation, land degradation, soil erosion and air and water pollution etc. may exceed the benefits of having more output of goods and service.
The World Commission on Environment and Development originally defined it as development which meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, and there have been many subsequent redefinitions. Its basic principles are set out. Sustainable development has economic, social and environmental components. The solution is not necessarily to modify the original broader policies (which have conventional economic or poverty related goals) but rather to design more specific and complementary environmental measures that would address the more specific policy, market or institutional imperfection and thereby help mitigate negative effects or enhance positive impacts of the original polices on the environment.
