Summary
Ecology, Overpopulation and Economic Development
Pakenham, McEntire and Williams (2013) illustrate in their textbook that the population has been increasing over time and it estimates that it will reach more than 10 billion in 2050. That is considered a factor that endangers the suitable land required to live, it means that the environment will be devastated. That growth seems like a threat which can be easily founded in countries like Nepal, Indonesia, Brazil and Malaysia. Those places are considered one of the most important sources of natural material to the earth. There the destruction of forests has commercial influence in the hardwood market, For example, Brazil has made the attempt in 2010 to reduces poverty and provides much-needed employment. However, the consequences were the burning of approximately 9 percent of the Amazon forest. Such devastation cause global harming because of the CO2 emissions, and a new tendency to think about its possible solutions is emerging. One of the solutions is take control of the overpopulation, which has as disadvantage negative effects in nations economy. Another solution offered by experts is to create a sustainable environmentally social and economic development. This makes the situation complex because economic development is also a problem in many developing countries. Thus, developed countries are asking to developing countries stop to doing what they themselves did for the economy growth desired. However, the developed world has skilled strategies, which can be the impulse that developing countries need to approach the change of unsustainable practices. Pakenham et al (2013) emphasize that education and technology development are the most important topic that developed countries can share. That is, both developed and developing countries will encourage sustainable environmentally and friendly economic development.
