Résumé
The purpose of this thesis will be to examine the evolution of the concept of sustainable development, introduced in 1987, to promote environmentally friendly development on the international agenda. First, the literature on sustainable development will be evaluated. Then, the focus will narrow to how one country, Botswana, has been able to embrace and implement sustainable development practices into its development policies, with specific attention paid to cultural values and traditions. This thesis will argue that the general theoretical assumptions of sustainable development are commendable. However, it will also be argued that sustainable development, as a global imperative, should not resemble a generalized development policy applicable across the globe. Specific adaptations of the concept must happen at the global, regional, state, and local levels. Most importantly, sustainable development models must be unique to each sovereign nation, tailored to the diverse political, economic, social, and cultural values and policies.
