XXV CONVENTION OF THE PANAMERICAN UNION OF ENGINEER'S ASSOCIATIONS -
III PANAMERICAN CONGRESS OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
In the last decades, increasing interest of man for his environment has
brought deep changes in the relationship environment - development. As a
consequence of this, the vision of "Sustainable Development" arises this
was reiterated in "Our Common Future" in the Bruntland Commission of
1987. From then on many definitions have been proposed, ones of worldwide
knowledge and others of sectorial interest focused on natural=20
The "Sustainable Development" gathers two terms in its definition. The
first term, concentrates on getting the development goals. Since the fact
that the development is a whole process due to comfort or abstraction, it
has been conceived and divided into different independent levels so we
can talk about cultural, social, political and economic development;
although all of them have certain autonomy, in the practice, they are all
related reciprocally. The term "sustainable" emphasis on the control of
the negative effects generated over the environment by human activities
derived from their development in order to not endanger the satisfaction
of the future generations' needs.
In Latin America, the environmental problems such as the degradation of
the natural resources, poverty, ecosystem breakdown, loss of the
biological varieties, etc. have been increasing by the lack of
development planning; this fact compromises us to participate more
actively in the attainment of the sustainable development: A development
that integrates the ecological, political, legal, economic, technical,
social and cultural factors framed by the integration and=20
The Third Panamerican Congress of Sustainable Development organized by
the National Agrarian University La Molina and the Peruvian Society of
Engineers, is one of the activities of the XXV Convention of the
Panamerican Union of Engineers' Association - UPADI'98 that gives us the
opportunity to make possible the contribution of Engineering to the
efforts of reaching the sustainable development in our countries.
