SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT INDONESIA

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).

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.
