The ultimate goal of human development is to enable and ensure the sustainability of the welfare and prosperity of society and its environment. Thus, in order to maintain the success achieved by the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs), sustainable development is a very important issue. More broadly speaking, the objectives of sustainable development  encompass  climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice. All development components are interconnected and so achieving one development indicator influences the success of others.
