Resources and development: trying to close the gap responsibly

Journal Article:

Abstract

While many countries struggle to industrialize, developed countries face economic and social problems which could preclude continued economic growth and may result in structural changes toward new economic systems as well as radically different lifestyles. The widening gap between rich and poor countries suggests that developing nations could take a different path in the way resources are owned and used. Resource management is complicated in developing countries if a large manpower pool is displaced by technology. This complexity also affects matters of health and man's relationship to the biological world. Industrial countries have resolved the problem of pollution control through technology, which adds another layer of economic and social impacts. The need is for new industrial processes that are supportive of the environment and for approaches that will identify linkages between human activity and environmental quality. Such harmony must be based on public knowledge and an understanding of policies. The focus should be on urban areas and the concept transferred in conjunction with technology to developing areas.
