15 What is sustainability?

16 What is sustainability? Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Brurndltand Committee, 1987

17 What is sustainability? SiD Symbiosis in Development Sustainability is a state of a complex, dynamic system. In this state the system can continue to flourish without leading to its internal collapse (resilient), requires no inputs from outside its defined system boundaries (autonomous) and operates fairly (equity). Applied to our civilization, this state is consistent with an equitable and healthy society, as well as thriving ecosystems and a beautiful planet.
