Sustainable Developments

I really love the term "Sustainable Development", I think it's the best way to fight against the issues which become the thread of existence of humankind in this twenty-first century. The term is well adapted by the Western countries, but for the people of countries like Bangladesh, India and Pakistan it’s fairly a new term and yet to realize its importance for the development of the nation. I am sure that many of us familiar with the term, though my intention is not to explain it in a traditional way. I would like to share my feeling about the importance of Sustainability based on my experience.

Let's start with a story. When I was a child, Govt. had started to build an over bridge across the highway neighboring my house. Six months after finishing the construction work of the over bridge they had suddenly started to break it down, at that time I was amazed by the fact that why they just broke down a newly constructed over bridge. A few days later I learned that Govt. had planned to build a new flyover on the highway, as the existing over bridge was placed in the way of the Flyover, they had nothing to do except demolishing the Over bridge. It seems really foolish to me to change a decision within such a short time.

Actually, most of the decisions or planning taken by Govt. is not backed by the knowledge of sustainability. For example, If someone has a huge land he might think it will be better to build a large house for leaving, he didn't consider how he might use the land on the other way, he just gives preference to his present necessity. But, after a few years when he feels the scarcity of fresh food, he might think it would be better if he had left some land for cultivating fresh vegetables. Undoubtedly, the development was not sustainable.

 Whenever we do some planning, we must have to consider what will be the impact of specific development after a hundred years; did it really comply with the master plan of the country? I am fairly sure the Western Countries are pretty much concern with the idea, that’s why their development process is so smooth. It’s time for the people of developing and underdevelopment country to realize the importance of "Sustainable Development"

  • Nice to read your writing and I am agree with you about this topic in our country. Thanks for sharing your nice thinking dear Md shariar Siddiquiq,
  • Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. All definitions of sustainable development require that we see the world as a system, a system that connects space; and a system that connects time.

    I am working in renting service and you can visit website here, the concept of sustainable development is rooted in this sort of systems thinking. It helps us understand ourselves and our world. 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.

  • Ap ni kimon acho Md shariar Siddiqui! Ami jani na, lakin acha blog Siddiqui by. We are doing our best to reach that sustainability and keep our economy moving and alive most of the time.
