Las prácticas ecológicas son esenciales para el desarrollo sostenible. Abarcan las innovaciones técnicas y el consumo responsable de los recursos ambientales, junto con los esfuerzos mundiales para asegurar que el progreso no niegue a las generaciones futuras la oportunidad de lograr una mejora deseable de las condiciones sociales y económicas basadas en este impulso. Este artículo intenta situar las prácticas ecológicas en el contexto de la agenda del desarrollo sostenible y discute el significado conceptual del término prácticas ecológicas. También examina los factores determinantes de las prácticas ecológicas en los países en desarrollo, entre ellos Nigeria. El texto desarrolló el Generational Development Framework (GDF) para analizar la conexión entre las prácticas verdes y el desarrollo sostenible. Por último, concluye destacando que las prácticas ecológicas son un motor fundamental para cumplir el programa de desarrollo sostenible, en particular en los países en desarrollo.
