Introduction


In the context of environmental changes facing countries of the world, there’s a growing need for new visions for dealing with sustainable development to improve quality of life. There is also a need for preserving natural resources and sustaining them for future generations, which makes the focus on the environmental aspect a crucial and important matter.

In light of the adoption of sustainable development goals for 2030 in the United Nations summit that was held in New York City in 2015 and its results, a new phase of development is ongoing all over the world. It is represented by the start of the implementation of the 2030 sustainable development agenda globally, regionally and nationally.
