Development of Resources
Many resources cannot be consumed in their original form. They have to be processed in order to change them into more usable commodities. This is known as resource development.
With the rise in human numbers all over the world, the demand for resources has also increased and led to the following problems.
- Depletion of resources.
- Division of society in to rich and poor due to accumulation of resources only in some hands.
- Indiscriminate of resources has led to ecological problems such as global warming, depletion of the ozone, pollution etc.
In order to solve this problem we need to plan the utilisation of resources for sustainable development.
