World population, which reached 7 billion this 2013, is growing faster than ever before: three people every second, more than 250,000 every day. At the beginning of the decade, the annual addition was 93 million; by the end it will approach 100 million. At this rate the world will have almost 10 billion more people by the year 2080. In this matter, population and development are closely aligned. If we do not voluntarily bring population growth under control in the next one or two decades, the nature will do it for us in the most brutal way, whether we like it or not. Population in the Philippines is more than 103 million. Population growth by continents is extremely varied.

Thus, the developmental activities are unsustainable for global ecosystem. But we cannot stop these activities. For the development of the nation, these activities are essential. Industrial growth is directly related to nation's economy. excessive exploitation of the environment through these technological implications leads to disaster. Hence, there is the problem of one word "pollution." So what is needed is the environmental management and sustainable development. "Sustainable development is implied to regulate the demands of man in such a manner that the ability of the same environment to sustain his development will remain un-repaired. Sustainable development and environmental management are essential for improvement both the quality of the environment and the quality of human life. The sustainable development and management perspectives should aim to Preserve what needs to be conserved and Protect what needs to be protected.

Many people are now familiar with RH Bill or reproductive health bill. This is possible but we cannot be sure about what will be the incoming effect of it in our country. RH bill is verry controversial and there were recently debates about this issue by the government and the Catholic church.
