This survey observed the extent of adoption of elements of sustainable community development (SCD) in Nigeria, along with the integration of peace efforts. The study selected 250 respondents from five South Western states in rural and urban Nigeria, using stratified proportionate random sampling techniques. Six research questions were answered and one hypothesis tested using the duly validated, researcher-constructed questionnaire – SCDN. Findings revealed that the level of incorporation of sustainability principles was rather low, and that SCD practices affected the peace process in Nigeria. The implication is that the future of communities will be compromised, the rate of development slowed considerably, and peace efforts thwarted, if sustainability principles are not interwoven into community development practices and peace efforts.
