Sustainability in Subsistence Marketplaces, a Community Challenge

man’s excessive use of natural resources for economic development has fostered undesirable changes (McDonough & Braungart, 2002), threatening even the world’s future survival (Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, 2005). The Brundtland report defines sustainable development as the use of resources to satisfy the needs of present generations, without compromising the possibilities for future ones to meet theirs (Brundtland, 1987). This intergenerational perspective of sustainability has been complemented by viewpoints that set out the effects of such environmental problems on present generations, especially when it comes to the most vulnerable communities (Matinez, 2004).
