Natural Resource Management in the Context of Sustainable Growth
Natural resources, Sustainable Development, Sustainable Exploitation, Biodiversity Demographic Explosion the Brundtland Report
Present realities show that the 21st century is the period of the greatest discoveries and transformations of the human civilization but, at the same time, of the most complex and, quite often, unsuspected effects on life. The demographic explosion and the unprecedented progress of all activity branches were naturally followed by an increase in the demand for raw materials and energy, and this in turn showed the need for thoughtful exploitation of natural resources so that the development of society may be a sustainable one. Moderate exploitation of resources has become essential given the fact that the sustainable development of human society directly depends on the sustainable exploitation of natural resources. A sustainable exploitation of resources leads to the preservation of biodiversity and atmospheric stability as well as to a steady base of resources.
