What is Sustainable Development?

Sustainable Development are programmes designed to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

In Jamaica, this approach is gradually becoming mainstream and environmentally friendly solutions are now of great concern. We have decided to focus on: Economic, Social and Environmental aspects.
