What are the 5 P’s of sustainability?
Sustainable development is a concept that encompasses all aspects of human activities and aims for the well-being of people in the long run. It involves making decisions that take into account the environment and society in a way that will not compromise the needs of future generations.
The UN has developed a set of 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) that will help the world end poverty, fight inequality and protect the planet by 2030. These SDGs address a wide range of global issues including poverty, climate change, environmental degradation and peace and justice.
SDGs target the following areas: * Food security – Ending hunger and malnutrition and increasing access to healthy and nutritious foods, with an emphasis on improving water quality and sanitation in accordance with WHO standards.
* Economic growth – Stable, inclusive and environmentally sound economic development that promotes employment, innovation and sustainable infrastructure.
• Environmental protection – Combating climate change and protecting oceans, forests and terrestrial ecosystems, reducing pollution, waste and air emissions and building resilience to disasters.
All countries need to meet the basic needs of their citizens such as food, water, and energy. This can be done through reducing poverty, limiting unemployment, and improving living conditions in rural and urban areas.
