Abstract—Sustainability could be defined as an ability or
capacity of something to be maintained or to sustain itself. It’s
about taking what we need to live now, without jeopardizing the
potential for people in the future to meet their needs. However,
the manner in which indigenous people of sub-Saharan Africa
interact and exploit their ecology could cause massive damages
to achieve sustainability in the contemporary society. Although,
the developed countries face diminutive challenges on
sustainability due to the legislature system and the regulation
that is being practiced and implemented. This paper presents in
depth the challenges facing sustainability in sub-Saharan
countries and their adverse effects to the society. Also, it
suggests the possible solutions on how to overcome the scourge.
Index Terms—Sustainability, ecology systems, pollution, economy.
