  • Population Change and Sustainable Development
    • Stockholm Global environmental summit 1972
      • Environmental Objectives
        • Maintain ecological processes
        • Preserve genetic diversity
        • Ensure the sustainable utilisation of species and ecosystems.
    • Sustainability is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
    • Economic Sustainability
      • Considers the ability of economies to maintain themselves when resources decline or become expensive, and when populations dependent on those resources are growing.
      • According to international summits (Rio 1992, Johannesburg 2002)
        • The right to development must be fulfilled to meet equitably the needs of present and future generations.
        • All states should accommodate in eliminating poverty in order to decrease disparities in living standards.
        • The special needs of developing countries, particularly the least developed and environmentally most vulnerable, should be given priority.
        • Unsustainable production and consumption patterns should be eliminated and appropriate demographic (e.g. population) policies should be promoted.
    • Environmental Sustibility
      • According to international summits (Rio, Johannesburg etc.)
        • People should be at the heart of concerns regarding development.
        • Laws should be enacted regarding liability for pollution and compensation
        • States should pass on information about natural disasters and notify neighbours of any foreseen and accidental consequences of their own activities that might cross boundaries

Ummmm....Actually! Stockholm is an advanced sustainable, smart city. Thank You


@Dillberry Pickelz I think you'll find that you are sorely mistaken! Stockholm is caught in the middle of a raging conflict between the Vikings and the Saxons. Thank You

@Scrottimus Well if you look at the historical evidence, Stockholm only became a major city in Scandinavia in the early 15 Century. Resulting in its progression away from a simple farming and raiding settlement to become a town of commerce and fishing. Thank You


@Dillberry Pickelz In the current socio-economic climate in Europe. Sweden and Stockholm are benefiting hugely from the rise of IKEA and their delicious meatballs and sauce. Thank You!
