Description: 

Those in developing countries face serious environmental challenges.  Resource exploitation, rapid industrialization, disadvantageous trade, and labor abuses are some of the potential consequences of unbalanced and non-sustainable development.  Sustainable human development ensures that environmental stewardship accompanies concomitant progress in economic growth, responsive governance, social justice and health of the population. Sustainable development implies that resources are used wisely, industrialization occurs without uncontrolled pollution, and labor is engaged in production and trade practices that avoid exploitation.  Environment and Development is a course that identifies potential environmental problems that may arise during development. Global and local environmental problems and their root causes are discussed. Potential avoidance and mitigation measures are presented which may be implemented to guide a developing economy toward responsible and sustainable development
