Our reflection on development, underdevelopment, and sustainable development is simple and not defined only by in terms of economics. Although economics plays a central role in determining the health of a nation, it is however, not true indicator to show how a certain population in given nation is coping with their life. Our perception of development is largely influenced by the happiness of the people and how they are treated in their home countries. Development means to us, people having the choices to attain life sustaining resources, like food, shelter, education, health, employment and most of all security to safeguard their human worth. These are the most important factors of development that focuses on the wellbeing of the people of Ethiopia. For us, development should be people centered, and not just an economic number that is propelled to show how well a country is doing in its developmental index. We submit to the fact that the natural resources of a country matters and how it is ranked in the world using the GDP or GNI indexes. However, we are convinced what truly matters are how resources are managed and are being used to improve the quality of life of the people.
