The most serious challenge before the states is pursuing economic development without causing further damage to the global environment. How could we achieve this? Explain with a few examples.
The economic development can be achieved even without damaging global environment by following practices:
- In June 1992, Earth Summit provided some conservative measures for sustainable growth without damaging environment anymore.
- The Antarctic Treaty of 1959 covered Global Commons for mutual economic development.
- Kyoto protocol cut greenhouse emissions from industrialised countries to protect environment and to develop industries also.
- Resource Geopolitics allocates and ‘ distribute natural resources among the nation states of global arena for sustainable development of nations.
Hence, the above mentioned practices protect the global environment and even though the states are developing we could achieve this challenge only if we follow the provisions and practices mentioned in all these conferences and summits.
