Sustainable Development explained in cartoons

Developed by Survivor International

to bring them sustainable development.

However, in this specific case

we encountered an unexpected challenge.

It turns out that these people,

in their own strange kind of way,

were already sustainable…. So all we could really bring them was…

We started with Participatory Community Development. But they did not fully participate.
We tried income-generating activities… but some people seemed satisfied with less than a dollar a day.
We even attempted to empower them, but their reaction was more powerful than we expected.

So we opted for a Multi-Stakeholder Cross-Disciplinary Integrated Approach.

We developed innovative Private Sector Partnerships.

We developed Vocational Skills adapted to a shifting economy.

We developed tough conservation measures, to protect the environment from further harm.

And we developed ambitious Social Safety Nets – for those unable to take care of themselves.

This has been a challenging process with many lessons learned.

We certainly look forward to applying them elsewhere in the very near future. But for now let us just say,

Welcome to the Global Village!
