Why sustainability is important?

What is sustainability? There are multiple definitions, but the simplest one is the ability to be maintained at certain level, however the sustainability component mentioned here is meant to be integrated with development projects, how to sustain a project or program you developed/created?

I believe the answer is by following up and create solution to the problems that will come to surface while waiting to see the impact.

What will be the point of developing a project or a program if we didn’t see the results/impact, be it short term or long-term results/impact.

Sustainability is key to grow any program and to see the real impact of that project or program. It’s hard, time consuming and takes efforts to follow up, but in order to succeed, this is the price to pay.

The definition changes from context to another, but the core is the same.
