7.8 Sustainable Development

Harrison Burnside

โฑ๏ธ April 1, 2020


Renewable Energy

Products that are harvested from living environments like fisheries are usually renewable but if these resources are continually drawn from, they pass the level of sustainability for that ecosystem. Natural resources like natural gas and coal are drawn from mining plants that are usually not as renewable as โ€œliving environmentsโ€ and lead their countries to resource-dependence.


Ecotourism is when people visit regions of countries mainly to visit natural habitats or landmarks like Yellowstone or the Costa Rican Rainforests. Ecotourism makes development possible like in Costa Rica where the government will pay people to protect land which stimulates the economy and keeps the natural habitats safe from mining!

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the UNโ€™s update to the Millennium Development Goals mentioned previously in this guide. These 17 new goals were created to help transform the world and support developing nations with the intention of eradicating poverty and promoting equality and democracy around the world. The UN calls the SDGs a โ€œblueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for allโ€!
