1. My understanding of Sustainable Development is that it is the development that focusses on finding solutions of the needs of the present without compromising the ability of the generations to come in order to meet their own needs. The main Sustainable Development issues affecting our community and country are deforestation and unpredictable weather conditions which are impacting the agricultural sector.
2.The main implication for our Change project is mind-set change for the community to be fully responsible and understanding at the same time own the project.
3. The definitions will guide in ensuring involvement of all people within the community of practice that have different knowledge, skills and values and also involvement of all people despite their differences be it gender, economic, socio-cultural etc. It also helps to consider indigenous and modern knowledge in working on this development.
