"Sustainable development is the only development that makes sense. " - President Bill Clinton. When I heard President Clinton say those words, I smiled. How can sustainable development not make sense to anyone who is listening? Sure, I have heard clever field experts mention that development, given its need to extract in order to build, cannot be sustainable. I tend to think that it really is not about what we call it, but how we practice it. I was pleasantly surprised to find my sentiments echoed throughout a conference that I attended.
