Abstract

The issue of sustainability is approached and prioritised in varying ways across different countries. Thus it is not surprising that there are widely divergent views and interpretations of sustainable development between countries with developed market economies on the one hand, and those with developing economies on the other. Countries with mature economies are in a position whereby they can devote great attention to creating more sustainable living environments through the upgrading of existing legislation and regulations. They are able to develop and employ innovative technologies for smart and sustainable inhabitation, whilst developing countries are more likely to focus on providing for the basic needs, inhabitation, social equality and economic sustainability for their citizens. To this end many developing countries depend upon industrialisation for the development of their economies.
