Understanding Sustainable Development

In an era characterised by global challenges such as climate change, poverty, injustice and resource scarcity, sustainable development is becoming increasingly important. Different actors play a central role in achieving the goals of sustainable development by addressing social, economic and environmental issues. In this article, we will look at the definition of sustainable development and examine its main dimensions, highlighting the key actors in promoting and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and their influence.

Key Dimensions of Sustainable Development

Economic Prosperity

Sustainable development requires economic growth that is inclusive, equitable and environmentally responsible. This includes creating opportunities for decent work, promoting entrepreneurship and encouraging fair trade practices. Start-ups are an important driver and indicator of a country's innovative economic strength and thus play a central role in a country's sustainable development. NGOs (Non-Governmental Organisations) contribute to this by advocating responsible business practices, supporting local industries and strengthening communities through economic initiatives. The state is responsible, among other things, for promoting and securing this prosperity for all. Furthermore, through regulation, it lays the foundation for innovation and thus for the sustainable development of a country.

Social Justice

Responsible Treatment of the Environment


FEA´s Approach to Sustainable Development in Kenya and Africa

"Our idea of equality is the ability to fulfill potential. We empower people to determine their own life and create their future."

(Vision of FEA)

FEA believes that local problems need local solutions.

That is why we look at sustainable development holistically, taking into account all the dimensions mentioned above on site.

This means that the focus is primarily on empowering people to pave the way, to implement the local solutions and thus to create organic economic growth and thus improve the social justice of a country.

By empowerment we mean access to education and other resources needed to implement innovative approaches developed by local people.



Sustainable development projects in kenya & the world in general encompass the vision of a future in which economic prosperity, social justice and ecological well-being exist on an equal and mutually inclusive basis.

Various actors play a central role in this. Typically, states and NGOs provide funding for transformative projects and innovations that drive change. Start-ups strengthen the economy and the attractiveness of a country. They are the driver of a country's sustainable development

In addressing the complexities of a rapidly changing world, the commitment and ingenuity of all actors play a critical role in shaping a more sustainable and equitable future for all.
