Q.9:- Why is the issue of sustainability important for development?
(a) Suppose presently a particular country is quite developed. We would certainly like this level of development to go up further or at least be maintained future generations.
(b) Since the second half of the 20th century, a number of scientists have been warning that the type and levels of development are not sustainable.
(c) Groundwater is an example of renewable resource. But if we use more than what is replenished by nature, then we would be overusing this resource.
Once the non-renewable resources would be exhausted we won’t be able to use them in future. So, using the resources judiciously will help in maintaining the sustainability of development of our eco-system.
