This paper focuses on the problems of developing a strategy of sustainable development. It builds upon the principles of a diversified productive base, creative use of local resources, and local participation in planning and implementation. This essay identifies many opportunities to reflect on the importance of sustainability, and the possibilities of implementing approaches that move us in a new direction. But it also suggests that there are significant obstacles to such progress. In the last section, it explores such an approach, suggesting that it may be possible and necessary to promote a new form of sustainable popular development: a structure of local autonomy that allows people to rebuild their rural societies, produce goods and services in a sustainable fashion while expanding the environmental stewardship services they have always provided.
