Sustainability and Sustainable Development of Mineral Resources

  • Kaulir Kisor Chatterjee
Chapter

Abstract

The two are different by the way they are understood. Sustainability in general is understood in the sense of security of the planet or a country and that in relation to mineral resources is linked with security of raw material availability. On the other hand, sustainable development of mineral resources denotes ways and means in which mining should be carried out and is linked to corporate social responsibility (CSR) and certain other activities with a view to developing the areas and the peoples around mines. In a sense, the former is more security-centric while the latter is more welfare-centric.
