SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT - DEFINED

STOCKHOLM DECLARATION, 1972
Man has the fundamental right to freedom, equality and adequate conditions of life, in an environment of a quality that permits a life of dignity and well being and he bears a solemn responsibility to protect and improve the environment for present and future generation

BRUNDTLAND COMMISSION REPORT, 1987
“OUR COMMON FUTURE” Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It contains within it two key concepts: • the concept of 'needs', in particular the essential needs of the world's poor, to which overriding priority should be given; and • the idea of limitations imposed by the state of technology and social organization on the environment's ability to meet present NCCIRD 2010 BHU 5 and future needs.

INDUSTRIALIZATION CANNOT BE IGNORED Charkha: EMBLEM OF INDIAN INDUSTRIALIZATION SELF SUSTENANCE; IN A DEMOCRATIC SETUP

Q. WHAT DOES SOCIAL DEMOCRACY MEAN? A. It means a way of life which recognizes liberty, equality and
fraternity as the principles of life. These principles of liberty, equality and fraternity are not to be treated as separate items in a trinity. They form a union of trinity in the sense that to divorce one from the other is to defeat the very purpose of democracy… Dr. AMBEDKAR
