Sustainable development is defined as “development that meets the current need without reducing the capability of the next generation top meet their need (UNCED, 1992). To ensure that a development process is sustainable, we need to integrate economic development, social development and ecological conservation in a balanced and stable equilibrium. Thus sustainable development refers to continuous and balanced efforts that are neither directed towards an extremism of economic exploitation, nor toward social and or ecological extremism.
