BDDS208 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Course start date: 30 Aug 2019
We are starting to see that a number of activities that we are currently involved in our pursuit of development are coming with a number of unacceptable effects. Among other such effects is the increasing gap between the rich and the poor, environmental degradation, global warming, and endangering the generations to come after ours. It is after this realisation that concern for sustainability in development is growing. This is what this module tries to address by: explaining the meaning of sustainable development, its background, indicators, justifications, and theories behind. This module will explain the concept of the environment and role of the environment in development; it will analyze the state of the environment and the various environmental traditions, ethical theories, and attitudes of people towards the environment; it will handle the concept of sustainable development and the various associated theories, values, and strategies, as well as the challenges one is likely to grapple with on the road to sustainable development in a given sector or life. The role of sustainable living (and livelihood) will be emphasized
