Green Building Council Namibia Convention 2014

| Windhoek, Namibia | August 2014

Sustainable development is defined as: “development in which resource use aims to meet human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for generations to come.” As the world is moving closer to an all-encompassing pursuit of sustainability, the construction industry is not being left behind. In Namibia, large corporate clients and international funding agencies are beginning to insist on good environmental performance as a prerequisite for their projects.
