Axes of action to protect nature
There are several axes working to protect nature, including:
The protection of water resources is a vital issue for its importance in societal uses and the continuity of various biological systems, land and sea, and work to protect these resources must be supported by the official authorities as well as the societal trend to ensure the provision of supplies that can meet the future needs of the community, the simplest forms of water provision in Homes and raising awareness of the harms of polluting water resources with industrial or human waste represent the first steps in the way of protecting this natural resource.
With the increasing needs of society that accompany development and growth, work must be done to find clean and renewable alternatives to energy, whether in homes or workplaces, and even in the conduct of various means of transportation. ; Which helps reduce harmful emissions and protect the climate.
The economic development and accompanying activities have negatively affected many forms of wildlife and marine life, and destroyed vital ecosystems, so problems of desertification and drought appeared, and the death and extinction of different types of animals and plants. Also, the preservation of biological diversity and ecosystems from these dangers must be supported by strict laws and legislation against Industrial and commercial activities adversely affecting nature.
Community Participation and Sustainability
Controlling natural resources and preserving them from extinction means that all elements of society must participate in decisions related to those resources, and this can be achieved through education and education programs related to how to use and preserve natural resources. Practical experiences have proven that awareness committees in cases of natural crises have had huge impacts on the speed and effectiveness of responding to the crisis. As for achieving the concept of sustainability, which can be advocated by major industrial and commercial institutions as a form of propaganda, civil institutions and community oversight must be the arbiter regarding those activities.
The most important international agreements for the protection of natural resources
Among the most important agreements that have been implemented to protect natural resources are the following:
It is an agreement concerning the prior approval of the circulation and use of some chemicals and agricultural pesticides. It has been in force since 2004 AD. Its importance is due to the preservation of agricultural soils and crops from chemical pollution as a result of the excessive use of pesticides, especially in developing countries.
Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants
Persistent organic pollutants are chemical compounds consisting mainly of carbon, and they are classified as persistent because of their great ability to stay for long periods in the places where they settle after their spread, as well as because of the possibility of their accumulation in the tissues of various living organisms, and these substances have very high toxicity, and are usually used Such as insecticides such as DDT, dioxin, and others, and this agreement, which was established since the beginning of the current century, aims to reduce the handling of these pollutants and provide the necessary procedures for their disposal, whether as stock or waste.
