Called Our Common Future 1, it emphasised the concept of ‘sustainable development’. In theory, sustainable development simply means meeting the needs of the present generation, without compromising the needs of future generations. The true challenge of sustainable development lies in putting the theory into practice. Cleaner production provides a practical way of moving towards sustainable development.

  • The typical amount remitted per transaction by international migrants ranges from US$100 to US$1,000 (Sander and Maimbo 2003, 16). According to the World Bank (2004), the global average transaction value is US$200. Migrants make significant sacrifices to send an average of US$200 eight or more times per year to their home country. Several studies indicate that permanent migrants send about 15 per cent of their salary home, whereas temporary migrants may remit up to 50 per cent of their income (USAID 2002, quoted in Sander 2003a, 8).

  • When animals are selected from farmers’ herds, ideally farmers involved in the selection programme will have several cows, so that animals can be compared both within and across herds. When purchasing bull calves or females for future bulls, AI service providers have to consider the production and reproduction records, general appearance, breed makeup and pedigree performance of the cow. The most accurate way to select the best cows will be to perform a statistical analysis to obtain a genetic evaluation. Many factors other than genetics will affect an animal’s production.
