National Mission on Sustainable Habitat

Sustainable development concerns in the sense of enhancement of human well-being broadly conceived, are a recurring theme in India’s development philosophy. The present day consensus reflect three foundational aspirations. First that human beings should be able to enjoy a decent quality of life; second, that humanity should become capable of respecting the finiteness of the biosphere; and third, that neither the aspiration for the good life, nor the recognition of biophysical limits should preclude the search for greater justice in the world. Sustainable habitat would mean achieving a balance between the economic and social development of human habitats together with the protection of the environment, equity in employment, shelter, basic services, social infrastructure and transportation.
