Institutional Framework for Sustainable Development (IFSD)
IFSD should considerthat individual countrieswill need to implementSD depending on theirneeds and capacity.IFSD should alsoencourage cooperationbetween nations toachieve greater goalsfor SD world-wide. IFSD is just as much about people, public and private entities as well as governments. For example, otherentities can take part in decision making, such as businesses or corporations, scientists and citizen-ledorganisations.You can build momentum toward effective solutions in your community by lobbying . Even if you do not lobby,you should always be informed. Look for local meetings and events which you can attend to gain a deeper under-standing of your community and build relationships.
Things to keep in mind:
Relationship building is not a chore. Approach people with a willingness to connect.
Listen to understand what people are saying instead of trying to get them to agree with your points.
Do not discriminate! Keep an open mind and treat everyone with equal respect.
