Sustainable Development, 2000 - 2008


This statistical review represents is a first attempt in the Republic of Macedonia to promote the sustainable development concept from a statistical point of view.

Sustainable development means that the needs of the present generation should be met without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It is a challenge that each person, country, and the whole world in general is faced with, in order to ensure continuous improvement of the quality of life and well-being for present and future generations; it is also an objective that all undertaken actions and policies should conform to.

Bearing in mind the global importance of sustainable development, the State Statistical Office made efforts to compile and to unite in one place available indicators in the statistical system of the Republic of Macedonia, all for the purpose of sustainable development. The indicators have a multi-domain character and reflect the economic, social, environmental, and, to a certain degree, the institutional dimension of sustainable development.

The concept of the publication follows the structure of the set of indicators defined with the European strategy for sustainable development. The indicators are compiled on the basis of information that the State Statistical Office has at its disposal, and the methodology, which is harmonized with that of the European Union. At the same time, the indicators simply show the trend of a certain phenomenon, without prejudicing sustainability or non-sustainability.
