Water is the most abundant natural resource in the world. In fact, it covers up to percent of the Earth’s surface. However, it is important to note that only about 3 percent of water is fresh and out of this, only about less than 1 percent is available for direct human use. In addition to natural resources, we also need social and economic resources. Sustainability is not just environmental- Economic Sustainability Human communities across the globe are able to maintain managing and protect-ing our common environment “ World Summit Outcome. 24 October Web.

  Managing the natural environment is fundamental to many businesses, yet management scholars have understudied how natural resources are acquired and deployed, how they constrain and challenge strategy and innovation, and how they differ from more conventionally studied resources in management. This book captures leading and thought-provoking. As the human population continues to grow and places increasing demands on the planet we inhabit we face the biggest challenge of our time: how can we exploit the natural resources available to us - be it for water, food, or energy - in a way that preserves the environment, and doesn't compromise its long-term future - and that of our nment, Development and Sustainability.

A section of Sustainability (ISSN ). Over the last decades, the use of primary resources has been increased due to the growing global population, the improvement of economies and a new life-style which is changing the habits of populations from high income and developing countries. However, some goods, such as fossil fuels, free lands. These include manufactured capital, natural capital, human capital, and social capital. Some substitutability may be possible among these kinds of capital, but in broad terms they are complementary, so that the maintenance of all four is essential over the long term. * The conservation of ecosystems and natural resources is essential.
