:"Not to be confused with interconnectivity or interconnectedness."

Interdependence is a dynamic of being mutually responsible to and sharing a common set of principles with others. It is concerned with the mutually understanding of states with reference to economic growth and social acceptance. This concept differs distinctly from "dependence" in that an interdependent relationship implies that all participants are emotionally, economically, and or morally "interdependent." Some people advocate freedom or independence as a sort of ultimate good; others do the same with devotion to one's family, community, or society. Interdependence recognizes the truth in each position and weaves them together. Two people in a good relationship are said to be interdependent.It can also be defined as the interconnectedness and the reliance on one another socially, economically, environmentally and politically.
