Measuring Sustainability- Water Management Initiative Project (WMI)

The ultimate goal of development cooperation must be to enable developing countries to devise and implement their own solutions to key development challenges and to develop resilience against shocks and other setbacks. Sustainability is about building skills, knowledge, institutions and incentives that can make development processes self-sustaining. Sustainability cannot be an afterthought—it must be incorporated from the start when preparing a program or project.”

No coincidence that studies funded by oil companies show no evidence of climate change vs studies funded by climate change activists! Quality of analysis is based largely on the quality of the data collection tools.
