 Natural Resource Management and Sustainable Development

Show Summary Details


This article discusses the effective management of the world's natural resources. It reveals that throughout its existence, the UN has had a huge impact on natural resource management, both operationally and conceptually. The article also shows that the initial clash between development and conservation has been reframed as ‘sustainable development’, which is a useful analytical framework to bridge the North-South divide.

Keywords: effective management; natural resources; development; conservation; clash; sustainable development; North-South divide
