Sustainable Development

The term “Sustainable Development” has been sorely abused, especially since the transition of the MDGs to SDGs. As a Nigerian – knowing how Nigeria is regarded as a developing nation, I am still trying to understand these frameworks and how it works to leave no one behind – before 2030.

With lots of published articles juxtaposing Sustainable Development based on needs and perceptions and having organized dozens of development programs – especially around SDGs 7, 8, 11, 13, 14, 15 and 17; my focus currently is to ensure that the concept of sustainable does not halt development of people and communities in itself.
