Literature Review: Natural Resources problem for Environment

This “Ten Problems for Environment in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. policies, 
  2. assessment,
  3. energy efficiency,
  4. economics,
  5. natural resources,
  6. public involvement,
  7. ecosystems,
  8. human factors,
  9. urban and rural,
  10. pollution.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

5 Natural Resources

THE PROBLEM — Natural resource economics deals with the supply, demand and allocation of the earth natural resource. The sustainable utilization of natural resources is the theme of global economic and social development future. The goals of power transfer in the decentralization of natural resources governance have not been fully achieved.

CONCLUSIONS — Natural resources refer to the things that exist freely in nature for human use and don’t necessarily need the action of mankind for their generation or production. Every process of exploitation and utilization of natural resources can be regarded as the process of the transformation of the latent entropy into negative entropy capital through human labor. natural resource governance interventions increasingly rely on a new logic that requires citizens, local authorities and communities to be responsible for their own well-being and for resource sustainability. There is a low understanding of energy-water-food nexus resource use and management, and the livelihood benefit of individual nexus resources is the primary focus. New ways of forest management are needed to preserve the interests of the state, private business and society in the areas of efficient reforestation, development of the forest industry in Russia. Quality of life is a complex phenomenon covering various dimensions of people well-being, which cannot be accurately assessed by means of a single indicator. Models indicate a strong and permanent link between economic growth and development and raw material consumption, without decoupling. Many initiatives from the developed nations are now in progress to halt unnecessary waste and restore the recoverable components of natural capital. considerable work remains to identify and adopt more statistically rigorous accuracy assessment practices to achieve transparent and comparable land and benthic cover maps. Satellite thermal remote sensing has been recognized as the only viable means to generate consistent and systematic records of surface temperature at various space-time scales.
