While there are no “standard maps” for achieving successful sustainable socio-economic developments everywhere in the world, yet we can learn from exiting strategies and solutions. Naturally, nations around the world have own conditions, structures, needs and may exist in different stages of development with complex internal and external political, economical and trade relations. Assessing the existing models and strategies helps formulating short and long-term roadmaps that are appropriate and suitable to the socio-economic needs and conditions. Successful socio-economic developments can’t be based on random actions and have to follow robust strategies emanating from effective, collective and coherent interactions between all sectors and on all levels. In this context, cloudy and conflicting interesting “within and between” nations can be major obstacles for achieving sustainable socio-economic developments.
An example on how to build national roadmaps for bring about successful socio-economic developments even under economic constrains is given here.
“http://ustain-earth.com” represents here the growing attention of Uganda’s political efforts for achieving sustainable socio-economic developments. “The Greens” or “Green Parties” are emerging in Africa, ROBINAH K. NANYUNJA, the President General of Uganda’s Green Party, and a Green MP Candidate for Kawempe North Constituency 2016 in Kampala Uganda, is addressing the needs for implementation of sustainability roadmaps where the green ideology puts environmental responsibility at the same level like other development sectors, means that it provides the necessary political will to curb environmental degradation, which is more often lacking with conventional governments.

The needs, drivers and tools to make life accessible, affordable and sustainable on earth are explained and described at “Sustain-Earth”. Take a cop of coffee or tea and explore what “Sustain-Earth” is ABOUT.
Sustainable technologies are emerging solutions that will revolutionize industries and utilize human intelligence for the very survival of the earth. It is about turning waste to eco-products, efficient and economic production, conservation of raw materials and natural resources, protection of environment and the overall improvement of air, water and ecological qualities.
Preservation of ecosystems, and improving the quality of life on our planet, is IMPERATIVE and requires collective human responsibility, transparent engagement of all stakeholders, effective and continuous interaction between all society sectors with focus on the needs of the citizen. Achieving sustainable socio-economic developments requires inclusive implementation policies for environmental awareness, for innovative Career Development Plans and for sound research and education roadmaps.
The environmental pollution, industrial and human waste have already caused many local, regional and global disasters in terms of accelerating threats and enhanced degradation in all life qualities without exceptions, collapse of eco-systems and severe pressures on land-water resources as well as irreversible damages in climate and bio-diversity.
In this context, we have an actual example on how to turn dangerous waste to eco-friendly products. From here we need to take further steps for turning a hazardous By-product in Cement Industry with environmental and health threats to engineered eco-friendly products with new applications for clean water, eco-fertilization and agro-production of food. It is not simple but it is possible. Utilization of Cement Kiln By-Pass dust in civil constructions, water cleaning and diverse agricultural purposes is an example of the so-called “Sustainable Technologies”. In cement manufacturing a by-product generated is known as “cement kiln by-pass dust”, based on its chemical composition it can be used to produce building materials, clean water and eco-agriculture products.
The main target of this process was/is to neutralize the alkalinity of cement kiln by-pass dust and use its nutrient content (potassium) to get hydroponic eco-food production and turn its toxic particulate (breath irritation and risk for lung-cancer) and gaseous nature (green-house carbon dioxide) to environmental friendly carbonates as well as utilize this hazardous material for water cleaning and production of sterilized organic fertilizers.
