• creates new jobs and economic opportunities; and

• brings people out of poverty, and then keeps them from sliding back into poverty.


Our definition of sustainable economic growth is growth that:


• is not harmful to the environment;

• is not harmful to communities and wider society;

• does not entail the uncontrolled exploitation of natural resources; and

• does not create or exacerbate tensions or conflicts.
