Components of sustainable development

What are the components that cover sustainable development?

The method of development that considers the future of the earth is known as sustainable development. It focuses on establishing a better and cleaner environment for the future while taking into account how human actions for development affect the environment and ecological system. As a result, sustainable development refers to development initiatives that satisfy current needs without endangering the capacity of future generations to satisfy their own. The environment has gotten worse and many natural resources are on the point of running out as a result of increased industrialisation and technology. As a result, environmental deterioration is forcing humanity to pay attention, and sustainable development is crucial for resource management in industry. The United Nations' sustainable development objectives place a strong emphasis on protecting natural resources.

The idea of sustainability is a nuanced approach that takes into account the pressing need for long-term solutions to the environmental issues brought on by numerous human activities. The social ripples adopt comprehensive and calculated strategies to raise awareness of the need for sustainable development and to advance the means of attaining it.

 The Social Ripples, a sustainable development programme whose goals are in line with those of the United Nations, promotes the idea that sustainable development encompasses society's three primary pillars of economic, ecological, and human growth.

Economical component

More than 40% of the world's population lives below the poverty line, unable to earn the minimum income necessary to support themselves. It affects individual and national development and stagnates individual socioeconomic well-being. The economic component of sustainable development therefore refers to the largest stream of income in terms of rational use of resources, especially scarce resources. To increase the economic well-being of developed countries, we need to build the quality and quantity of manufacturing products using new technologies. But the question is, can the planet support manufacturing, or is development activity taxing it by damaging the environment and depleting energy resources? The economic factor is therefore an important factor that people need to think about financial well-being by staying in harmony with the environment.

Ecological component

Ecological factors relate to three main functions of the environment.
• Resource exponentiation function
• Excretion receptor function
• direct benefit

These are directly related to how people use natural resources for economic development. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals aim to create a better world so that future generations can live in a peaceful environment and meet their own needs. Therefore, ecosystem development is closely related to the interaction between economic development and environmental protection and improvement. The ecological component therefore generally refers to the use of renewable natural resources and the conservation of scarce natural resources. This is because our planet is the only planet endowed with various natural resources as environmental heritage.

Human component

All development activities are by and for people. Human development is therefore the most important component of sustainable development. Apart from the environment, human sustainability is related to social interactions, behavioral activities and mutual relationships, leading to both social and economic development. The human element of sustainable development therefore aims to create a stable and inclusive society to eliminate discrimination and loneliness among individuals in society. Instead, it focuses on promoting human well-being by understanding people's needs where they live and work. The human component of sustainable development includes the following goals:

• Promoting environmental education, training and public support;
• Protect and promote human health (Sustainable Development Goal 3: Health and well-being)
• Poverty reduction (Sustainable Development Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms)
• Demographic threats to sustainable development, especially by focusing on population growth in developing countries
