Development is a fundamental human right and development is the most secure basis for peace. The concept of development and decades of effort to reduce poverty, illiteracy, disease and mortality rates of under privileged are great achievements of the century. But sustainable development as a common cause is in danger of fading from the forefront of our agenda. The charter of UN makes possible a maturing elaboration of the crucial idea of development, but it has been left to us in the last decades of the twentieth century to try to bring the concept of development to fulfilment. The present work seeks to revitalize the vision of sustainable development and stimulate an intensified discussion of all its aspects.
