Inter-Generational Equity

Intergenerational equity refers to the principle that each generation should have the opportunity to enjoy a similar quality of life as the previous generation, and that they should not bear an undue burden of negative consequences from the actions of previous generations. This can involve issues such as the distribution of natural resources, the preservation of the environment for future generations, and the fair distribution of economic opportunities. Ensuring intergenerational equity is a key aspect of sustainability, as it helps to ensure that the needs and well-being of future generations are considered in decision-making.
