Abstract

At the dawn of the new millennium, people in developing countries are grappling with issues such as sustainable development, poverty alleviation, high population, and rapidly depleting renewable environmental resources. These issues have become prominent despite the development approached and strategies that have been adopted in developing countries throughout the world to attain economically, environmentally and culturally fulfilling and meaningful development. Instead of attaining better living conditions, most developing countries are struggling with stagnant economies, unequal development, increasing unemployment and rapidly worsening environmental conditions. It is certain that the natural environment cannot sustain the industrialised and monetised economy that most nations aspire for.
