SDG Action Award for Economic sustainability


SDGAwards

SDGAwards

The growing scale of the economic system has overstretched the natural resource base, prompting a rethink of the traditional economic postulations and prompted us to question the feasibility of uncontrolled growth and consumption. Due to population growth, human needs like food, clothing, housing increase, but the means and resources available in the world cannot be increased to meet the requirements forever. Economic sustainability, therefore, requires that decisions are made in the most equitable and fiscally sound way possible, while considering the other aspects of sustainability; and thus, forms one of the pillars of sustainable development.
