Sustainability in the context of regional development requires
and implies that the population be provided with an adequate
supply of nutrition produced on an ecoiogically sound basis
and within a healthy
economic and social order.
The regional approach creates great potential for sustainable
development to include poor sections of the popuiation. This
applies particularly to marginal locations, where Sustainability
can only be achieved through a package of measurcs. These
include traditional strategies to secure livelihoods, interregional
adjustrnent, subsidies and migration of population groups.
And it is imperative that back-up measures be provided to
ensure socially responsible land-use and utilisation of resources.
