Every society is composed of a multi factorial system that contributes to the overall status of the society per se. Among the varied systems that make up the general society, three most vital aspects are the economic, social and environmental factors. These three aspects must be adequately maintained at a level that can suffice the demands of every member of the society and these three must be equally monitored as well. However, each aspect plays a certain specific role in establishing an effective and interesting community.
Although the economic, social and environmental aspects portray different roles in the society, it is vital that these factors function in unison and make significant and positive influences, not just to the members of the society but also beyond the societal confines. Thus, the main goal of every community is to function as one while carrying the individual impact each aspect can impose. And the only way to achieve this ultimate goal is to undergo the process of integration.
Integration is the process of bringing together different components of the subsystems and makes it possible for these subsystems to function together without neglecting their individuality. The concept is applied when trying to integrate the economy, society and the environment.
In reality, these three work in a paradigm where one affects and influences the other. When the economic aspect of a society experiences a significant change, the environment and the society is expected to be affected by such change. Same as when the environment or the society exhibit changes. So basically, this is an ongoing cycle that provides various effects and different levels of impact on one another.
More so, it is a fact that members of every society have different perspectives when the concept of integrating the economy, the society and the environment is brought into interest. But regardless of such fact, most of the countries today have high hopes of achieving such integration successfully.
