From Legacy to Vision: Sustainability, Poverty and Policy Adjustment

By Richard Strickland, Naresh C. Singh on October 5, 2001
Poverty alleviation is essential for environmental sustainability.

Development cannot be based on continued global economic growth alone. Traditional models of economic growth have led to the current stalemate confronted by developed and developing countries. Within the confines of current technological capacities, endless expansion of the global economy is not viable.

This publication introduces alternative sustainable development strategies to advance human development, reverse impoverishment processes and to support social, political and ecological integrity of societies.
