Abstract
Are sustainable markets viable in developing countries? A look at the vast populations of the disadvantaged, with their subsistence economies and environmental problems, gives little reason for optimism. But the establishment of sustainable markets in these countries is one of the most pressing global problems to be addressed if we are to protect the biosphere. One crucial point has become evident to me from my experience in territorial planning in the poorer areas of Latin America, and that is that developmental policy and markets must always make people¿s security their main priority (security in food, health, environment, supply networks . . .). Sustainable markets are impossible in populations under stress. Development policies must therefore incorporate all the training programmes, technological tools and research necessary to optimise the security of populations, as an indispensable requisite for encouraging the development of sustainable markets in developing countries.
