Sustainable resource management means managing resources in a way that their sources are not depleted; so that the future generations can also benefit from it. A renewable resource can be used again and again, so is more sustainable, eg water, wind, wood, sun and wave energy. A non-renewable resource will eventually run out, so it is not sustainable in the long run, eg fossil fuels such as gas, oil, and coal. There is only a finite supply of non-renewable resources.

Sustainable management takes the concepts from sustainability and synthesizes them with the concepts of management. Sustainability has three branches: the environment, the needs of present and future generations, and the economy. Using these branches, it creates the ability of a system to thrive by maintaining economic viability and also nourishing the needs of the present and future generations by limiting resource depletion. From this definition, sustainable management has been created to be defined as the application of sustainable practices in the categories of businesses, agriculture, society, environment, and personal life by managing them in a way that will benefit current generations and future generations.

Dear Nirjhar,
It is important to understand what is sustainability first. Then that concept is to be extended in the scenario of resource management or resource utilization. Sustainability means any process or activity that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Now, when utilization of resources are carried out in a sustainable manner, i.e. the processes or strategies adopted will be able to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, is called sustainable resource utilization or management. In general, sustainability have minimum three pillars i.e. Environmental, Economical and Social. This can be extended and customized based on the system of your study. Some studies have taken four pillars where operational has been taken as the fourth pillar in addition to the existing ones.
Please check the following papers for your reference of understanding on sustainability.

In my own opinion(ingeneer), the main point is the life cycle. Every product, every system must be analyzed throughout the environnemental impact for each phase. Otherways, you can conclude that sustainability is ok if you focus only on one phase (for instance, see catalytic converter for atmospheric pollution but uses palladium which is a precious metal).

Hellow Nirjahr, when we talk sustainability of the system it include natural resource management and environmental management as well. Therefore, it depends on the perspective in which you wish to take it. Because sustainability it self indicate present utilization pattern should be in such a manner that future generation also enjoy equally.
Thanks

Sustainable resource management means managing resources in a way that their sources are not depleted ;so that the future generations can also benefit from it. For instance if we sell off the land that we inherited from our forefathers our children will have no land to call theirs.
Sustainable resource management is an aspect of environmental management
