The phrase “sustainable development” was made popular in the 1987 report, Our Common Future, of the United Nations Commission on Environment and Development.
The Commission – chaired by Norwegian Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland – provided a definition of sustainable development that was used for the next 25 years:
“Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Over time, the definition has evolved to better link the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic development, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability.
The SDGs provide a global framework for cooperation to address these three dimensions within an ethical framework.
