To effectively plan for and implement sustainable development requires a clear understanding of the organizing principles for meeting human development goals while sustaining the natural systems and resources of the environment. In Part I of this two-part series, an introduction to the principles and concepts of sustainable development and an overview of respected programs, initiatives, and resources to guide current projects are provided. The interrelationships between and integration of issues to plan for and resolve using the sustainable development process are presented with an emphasis on various models for effectiveness. Approaches to engaging and educating the development team and community on the value of sustainable development are also presented. In Part II, examples and case studies demonstrate how different sustainable development programs and strategies have been implemented in projects, and their rationale and effectiveness is discussed based on initial goals and outcomes.
