The Barbados Sustainable Development Policy
The Barbados Sustainable Development Policy was finalized in 2002 by the National Commission on Sustainable Development (NCSD) and the Environment Division. It was approved by Cabinet in 2003 and was laid in Parliament in January 2004.

This policy examines the core concepts of Sustainable Development upon which the national definition was built and in light of which specific policy statements are made. The main objectives of this policy are: to formulate (or provide) a national definition of Sustainable Development and identify national principles for the pursuit of Sustainable Development; to provide a national framework for decision-making based on our principles of Sustainable Development; to promote principles of Sustainable Development and encourage all persons in Barbados to adopt and apply these principles in every aspect of decision-making; and to sensitise and educate all persons in Barbados about key issues and conflicts between development and environment and the need to make wise consumption and production choices.
