Resources

 

All human activity depends on drawing on environmental 'resources' - the air we breathe, the water we drink, food we eat. Manufacturing and transport are at fast-increasing levels globally. The 'side effects' of extraction, processing, transport and eventual discharge as waste to the environment affect ecosystems, economies and social systems.
