Unsustainable livelihoods

Other Names:
Environmentally insensitive employment
Environmentally destructive jobs

A sustainable livelihood is a job that is meaningful, pays adequately, and does not harm the resource base of the local or national economy. Currently, many nations do not have explicit policies to encourage the creation of this kind of job; moreover, unsustainable livelihoods are usually not officially discouraged.
