Population income is also an important consideration. The uneven distribution of income results in pressure on the environment from both the lowest and highest income levels. In order to simply survive, many of the world’s poorest people partake in unsustainable levels of resource use, for example burning rubbish, tyres or plastics for fuel. • Natural resource management is also congruent with the concept of sustainable development. • Natural resource management specifically focuses on a scientific and technical understanding of resources and ecology and the life-supporting capacity of those resources. • Environmental management is also similar to natural resource Size: KB. There is concern over the sharp population increase in many countries, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa, that has occurred over the last several decades, and that it is creating problems with land management, natural resources and access to water supplies.. The population of Chad has, for example, grown from 6,, in to 10,, in As the human population increases, these natural resources are being used at a much more rapid pace. Renewable natural resources cannot be replenished fast enough and nonrenewable natural.

The exploitation of natural resources is the use of natural resources for economic growth, sometimes with a negative connotation of accompanying environmental started to emerge on an industrial scale in the 19th century as the extraction and processing of raw materials (such as in mining, steam power, and machinery) developed much further than it had in preindustrial areas. There is a strong link between provision of basic social services and the use of natural resources in a country. Thus, with increased population comes additional pressure on natural resources.
