Globalization — what is it?
Women and girls, everywhere, must have equal rights and opportunity, and be able to live free of violence and discrimination. In short, all the SDGs depend on the achievement of Goal 5. For example, discriminatory laws need to change and legislation adopted to proactively advance equality. Yet 49 countries still lack laws protecting women from domestic violence, while 39 bar equal inheritance rights for daughters and sons. Eliminating gender-based violence is a priority, given that this is one of the most pervasive human rights violations in the world today.
Three pillars of sustainability: in search of conceptual origins
Abstract Stable, sustainable economic development cannot be achieved unless and until social development also takes place. Consequently, the social dimensions of economic development and productivity are as important as the economic dimensions. In Latin America, inequality is the social dimension of utmost concern. Income and social inequality in Latin America and the Caribbean is the highest in the world, and the performance of the social sector is inadequate. These conditions are severely hampering economic growth and individual prosperity. More attention and investment is needed to reduce inequality and improve social performance. Part of this process of change is the improvement of social measurement and international statistical standards in the social areas.
Elaine Nevin addresses the role of education in achieving sustainable development and explores the relationship between development education DE , education for sustainable development ESD and environmental education EE in an Irish context. This definition acknowledges that while development may be necessary to meet human needs and improve the quality of life, it must happen without depleting the capacity of the natural environment to meet present and future needs. At first it emphasised the environment in development policies but, since , has evolved to encompass social justice and the fight against poverty as key principles of sustainable development. There are two commonly used visualisations of how the various aspects of sustainable development interact: one is of three overlapping circles representing the three pillars of sustainable development - economy, society and environment fig 1. The other shows the economy embedded in society, which in turn is embedded in the environment fig 1.
It's now five years on, and we have more work than ever to do. These goals have the power to create a better world by , by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone. In September , the leaders of all member states of the UN adopted Agenda , a universal agenda that contains the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. The 17 Goals in turn hold targets and indicators.
The four pillars of sustainability
Quality of life QOL , according to Britannica, is the degree to which an individual is healthy, comfortable, and able to participate in or enjoy life events. One approach, called engaged theory , outlined in the journal of Applied Research in the Quality of Life , posits four domains in assessing quality of life: ecology, economics, politics and culture. Also frequently related are concepts such as freedom, human rights , and happiness. However, since happiness is subjective and difficult to measure, other measures are generally given priority. It has also been shown that happiness, as much as it can be measured, does not necessarily increase correspondingly with the comfort that results from increasing income. As a result, standard of living should not be taken to be a measure of happiness. Unlike per capita GDP or standard of living , both of which can be measured in financial terms, it is harder to make objective or long-term measurements of the quality of life experienced by nations or other groups of people.

Social dimensions of economic development and productivity: inequality and social performance
Multiple disruptive forces—the rapid pace of technological change and its potential contribution to inequality chief among them—pose critical challenges to governments around the world. It is more important than ever for governments to develop and implement strategies that take that disruption into account and aim to improve the lives of citizens. SEDA combines objective, factual data on outcomes, such as in health and education, with quasi-objective data, such as governance assessments. It is a relative measure, assessing how countries perform relative to the rest of the world or to individual peers or groups of countries. SEDA defines well-being on the basis of ten dimensions that fall into three categories.
The three-pillar conception of social, economic and environmental sustainability, commonly represented by three intersecting circles with overall sustainability at the centre, has become ubiquitous. With a view of identifying the genesis and theoretical foundations of this conception, this paper reviews and discusses relevant historical sustainability literature. From this we find that there is no single point of origin of this three-pillar conception, but rather a gradual emergence from various critiques in the early academic literature of the economic status quo from both social and ecological perspectives on the one hand, and the quest to reconcile economic growth as a solution to social and ecological problems on the part of the United Nations on the other. The popular three circles diagram appears to have been first presented by Barbier Environ Conserv , doi:

Бринкерхофф пожал плечами: - Быть может, ребята заняты сложной диагностикой. Мидж покачала головой: - Настолько сложной, что она длится уже восемнадцать часов? - Она выдержала паузу. - Маловероятно. Помимо всего прочего, в списке очередности указано, что это посторонний файл. Надо звонить Стратмору.
Подумала. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes. Эти слова буквально преследовали. Она попыталась выбросить их из головы.
