For my final report, I will do a thorough study on wealth disparity in Vietnam. The objectives of my report will be to answers these questions:
This session was based in the presentation of the Sustainable Development Timeline of the last decade, followed by the presentations of five quick reports.
The timeline concludes in 2012 with 3 main issues: the trade disputes on solar energy, raising the question whether is better to access to this technology for a low price or act as a protectionist group or country and private people the access of this technology for a more affordable price; The Rio 20+ reunion and their call for climate change and safety of the biodiversity and the reach of cutting by half the percentage of the word’s people without access to safe drinking water, one of the millennium targets in 2005.

In Vietnam, wealth disparity is presented by the income gap, which shows the different in earning per month between the rich and the poor in Vietnam. The table below is the average income per month of the Vietnamese divided into 5 different income groups. Income quintile 1 is group of 20% of lowest earning people and income quintile 5 is the group of 20% of highest earning people in Vietnam per month.
Water is a huge and growing global challenge. It is essential to all human activity and a fundamental driver of all socio-economic growth but, as a resource, it is under strain from population growth, development and climate change. Access to safe water and sanitation is the first step out of poverty for individuals. Water accessibility and improved sanitation allows girls to continue their education beyond puberty, enables people to start and grow businesses, and ensures the risk of disease is greatly reduced.
Un jour, dit la légende, il y eut un immense incendie de forêt. Tous les animaux terrifiés, atterrés, observaient impuissants le désastre. Seul le petit colibri s’activait, allant chercher quelques gouttes avec son bec pour les jeter sur le feu. Après un moment, le tatou, agacé par cette agitation dérisoire, lui dit : « Colibri ! Tu n’es pas fou ? Ce n’est pas avec ces gouttes d’eau que tu vas éteindre le feu ! »
Et le colibri lui répondit :« Je le sais, mais je fais ma part.
As your professor of Sustainable Development, Economy and Society you would have thought that I might at least have sat you down at the beginning of the seminar and given you a clear understanding of that oft-repeated rarely-questioned phrase “sustainable development”.
This Nathalie Nomblot brought most embarrassingly to my attention yesterday when we were struggling to find a good topic for her make-up Quick Report, which I had usefully (!) suggested she might write on “sustainable development” and “something else” (her choice). To which she energetically wrote back: ”In one sentence, could you please give me your definition of Sustainable Development? That would help!”
Since several years, Turkey tends to develop the sustainable development by the environmental protection in many departments. However, it’s very hard to develop this process everywhere because culture and traditions are still very present in this country and prime. They are related as a social capital.
That’s why, we will analyse how culture and traditions are defined in Turkey, in order to show that ecology can be officially a good way and recognizing to Kyoto Protocol and then, show that officiously, ecology can be a good gain in developing the International Business for Turkey.
I will take for my final paper the same topic of my presentation on the water.Following is the content of my oral presentation. I will focus on the different new options and alternatives to help people have access to clean water and also the new business opportunities coming from this issue.

Too often when it comes to new sustainability initiatives, the common practice is to concentrate on laying the base for the project in close working relationships with people and groups who a priori are favorably disposed to your idea, basically your choir. Leaving the potential “trouble makers” aside for another day. Experience shows that’s a big mistake. Instead from the beginning when w are working with these potential divisive issues we have to take a . . .
