Culture of self-reliance, the basis for sustainability – spirituality in Bangladesh

The paper explores the principles of self-reliance and connects them to the sustainability concept drawing examples from Bangladesh. It argues that there is a need for an alternative model for development in traditional, predominantly rural communities which avoids creating dependence on foreign aid and allows for the empowering of local people to trust in their own capabilities and spirit. Self-reliance as an alternative to the western model if properly understood and applied can bring hope for a brighter and more sustainable future.
