The issue of development is at once important and controversial. The former stands on the meaning that the progress is the prime condition of social welfare and human well-being. The second concern stems from the variety of conditions and tips to be respected in order to cope with the development targets. In addition, the development planning strategy is bracketed by the patterns of the ground on which this strategy is applied. These patterns vary according to the specificities of the region- the ground of the development strategy- and its legacies. This assumption leads to think purposefully about the compatibility or the incompatibility of the environment considered as a factor to achieve the development targets. The paper tries to investigate the inter-relationship between the environment and the sustained growth and to explore the level at which the environment is more reliable to get the perceived outcomes.
