Theme 2: Economics and management of development

Sustainability in the economic, social and cultural context is an essential component for the achievement of SD objectives as foreseen by international organizations and stakeholders in the field. It assumes respect for fundamental conditions and principles such as: democracy, equity, accountability, training and awareness, precaution, prevention and evaluation; consultation, partnership and participation; and education,…
The achievement of sustainability in the economic, social and cultural context necessarily involves the mobilization of all actors in society: States, companies, governmental and non-governmental organizations and citizens, and the synergy of their various efforts to aim of creating common objectives and a coherent approach to interact democratically and build a new paradigm of development and therefore of society.
