Sustainable Development Goals

The term “ Sustainable Development” was first used in a report released by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), which explicitly linked nature conservation, natural resources, and development. The term was popularized in the 1987 report of the World Commission on Environment and Development (the Brundtland Commission), which defined sustainable development as humanity’s ability to make development sustainable by ensuring that it meets current needs of people without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own.
