Sustainable Development requires not just to economic growth but also to environmental and social issues. More current estimates suggest that 2 billion people will be added to the world population over the next 30 years and another billion in the following 20 years. Virtually all of this increase will be in developing countries, the bulk of it in urban areas. In these countries 2.5 billion to 3 billion people now live less than $2 a day. The core challenge for development is to ensure productive work and a better quality of life for all these people. This, ultimately require substantial increase in productivity and incomes in developing countries.
