Abstract :

Through this paper, we are going to propose ‘SUSTAINED METHOD’ for the solution of environmental issues and problems. This method has two pillars: First one is Economic Development and another one is Social Development (Tangible and Intangible Needs of Human Beings), essentially include the development of both the elements in an equivalent manner. Here the demanding theory is of “Maslow’s Need Hierarchy” which contains a set of Tangible needs like food, shelter, clothing’s etc.at the grass root level of hierarchy (closer to animals) and a set of Intangible needs like self-esteem, belongingness, love etc. at the top. In a society charged with more Economic Development, which has feature of ‘economic growth’ like accumulating wealth more than basic needs, adoption of illegal means is controlled by Social Values of an individual. Here the operating question is ‘why does an individual withhold wealth after the fulfilment of his basic needs? Keeping in view, we need to draw the Total Development Process as a system, in which both the elements of ‘Sustainability’ will work in an integrated manner. Because the Economic Development (Economic Behavior) of peoples makes them habitual of capturing economic power, this is the point of misbalancing which need to be correct as it creates lots of serious problems with many faces like poverty, hinder redistribution of wealth, wastage of environmental property, non-realization of their social duties towards nature, lack of Social Development. So, we must need to establish a balancing approach between the two i.e., Tangible (Economic Development) and Intangible need (Social Development). This will result in ‘Balanced Sustainable Development Model’.
