I have to respond to this discussion post’s questions. Once the term ‘sustainability’ came on the scene and then recognizedas an essential policy in 1970 and 80’s, it has been understood thatsuccessful gains towards sustainable economic growth require sustainablesocial and environmental practices working in concert. The UnitedNation’s Agenda 21, section 2.10(d) recommends that, among many others,activities include “[ensuring] that environment and trade policies aremutually supportive, with a view to achieving sustainable development”(1992:6). Successful implementation of policy at such large scale seemsan impossible task when considering the other all important factorssuch as economic, social, political, and environmental conditions ofmany, many individual nations. Section 3.1 acknowledges that there is“[n]o uniform solution…for global application. Rather, country-specificefforts…” are needed to make successful gains (1992:14). Throughout our reading about colonization, development, andglobalization, we have seen the strong, common thread of greed drivingeconomic policy and subsequent growth, internationally dominated bynations with financial muscle. Despite good-faith signatures by half ofthe nations in the world, there are no teeth to enforce policyimplementation that will ensure that these goals are achieved. To ensurethat trade policies are ‘mutually supportive’, will nations placesustainable importance above profit and the bottom line of the nationalbudget? Can this be viewed as giving profit away to other nations? Understanding that these agreements are not enforceable and arevoluntarily entered into, is it reasonable to believe that governmentswill make economic decisions that will result in less economic gain fortheir nation? Agenda 21 states “[t]he development process will not gather momentum …if the developing countries are weighted down by externalindebtedness…” (1992:4). What could be the repercussions, or benefitsfor that matter, if nations were to forgive international debt in theinterest of global economic growth, when considering the costs involvedto develop and implement policies to eliminate poverty and debt in thedeveloping countries?I attached the document that is used to answer this question. Only focus on the following sections: Preamble, Introduction (sections 2.1 – 2.22), Combating Poverty(sections 3.1-3.4), Changing Consumption patterns, industry (30.1-30.4)
