Development is a process of economic and social transformation

Development is a process of economic and social transformation based on cultural and environmental factors and their interactions. Community development seeks to empower individuals and groups of people by providing them with the skills they need to effect change within their communities. Sustainable development is maintaining a delicate balance between the human need to improve lifestyles and feeling of well-being on one hand, and preserving natural resources and ecosystems, on which we and future generations depend on the other.
