The obligation to the needs of future generations weighs heavily within the argument. The report of the Rio Summit (UNCED, 1992) recognised these issues and identified some major themes. Mitchell et al. (1995) have distilled from the literature of Rio and other reports four principles which underlie the guidance and advice that is given and take us beyond the pure environmental agenda, or at least to a better understanding of why environmental conditions change. These principles are: ❏ ❏ ❏ ❏ Equity: The concern for today’s poor and disadvantaged.

It is also not difficult to see that there is potential conflict between the systems identified as represented by their stakeholders. For example, the demand for business may squeeze out the residents from the area or create transport systems which are different from those desired by the citizens who live there or which have a detrimental effect on the health of both humans and plants. The noise level may increase to the point where the quality of life of the citizens is damaged and it may affect their ability to worship in the church.

Environment: The concern for the integrity of ecosystems. Public participation: The concern that individuals should have the opportunity to participate in decisions that affect them. Only one of these themes is directly concerned with the environment. The others are moral imperatives or cultural endorsements or mechanisms by which change can be effected through common ownership of the problem. However, they all impinge on sustainable development and their selection as major themes has come from the environment debate.
