Sustaining our development achievements and also preserving our natural and man-made resources for future generations are issues that must not to be compromised.

There are many ways to attain and maintain sustainable development, such as, by replacing the trees we cut down with new saplings.

Taking proper care of our national infrastructure and making judicious use of our meagre resources would all help us achieve sustainable development.

If the resource is renewable, and we use that and continue to maintain that resource then we can attain sustainable development.

Working towards sustainable development would help reduce poverty, inequality, hunger and environmental degradation in the country.

Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

So, in essence, sustainable development is all about our common future as a country.

The problems we face are complex and serious, and we can’t address them in the same way we created them. But we can address them by all of us doing something to ensure a more sustainable solution to them.

Sustainable national development calls for patriotism in the citizenry, which will make them to take charge of their own destiny towards development.

Many countries in the developed world were developed over many decades, and sustain for the present and future generations.

We, therefore, need to sustained our development endeavours for the benefit of generations yet unborn.
