Factors influencing the viability of sustainable development within a state include:

  1. Social factors – these include things like political factors and the willingness of the population to engage in sustainable practices. Population growth rate and distribution (rural vs. urban) also play a significant role in the viability of sustainable practices.
  2. Environmental factors – these include issues like access to clean water, availability of arable land, emission policies and other environmental regulations.
  3. Economic factors – this pertains to issues like access to technology, consumption rate, primary industries and other economic activities that influence national development.
  4. Energy and Resource factors – this concerns matters of resource extraction and utilization as well as energy sources and consumption.
