The issue of sustainability is ever increasingly high on the agenda of organisations involved in development. Complete local sustainability of projects would seem to be highly desirable for the beneficiaries, the implementing/capacity building agency, and the donor. However, this is a complex issue, and great care needs to be taken in the practical understanding of sustainability. Let us look at what sustainability is not, before exploring what it is, or should be.
