Sustainability requires balancing the use of natural resources to meet changing human needs while ensuring their long productive potential and conservation of environmental functions. Society depends significantly on natural resources for attaining basic needs, livelihoods and industrial development.
Due to limited incentives for sustainable management, limited alternative livelihoods and unsustainable land management practices, environmental degradation continues to propagate the poverty vicious cycle further.
Research on access and sustainable use of natural resources is crucial to address growing pressure triggered by emerging issues such as climate change, urbanisation, population increase, and invasiveness.
