The building of shelter (in all its forms) consumes more than half of the world’s g into 16% of the Earth’s freshwater resources . Envisioning the role of human beings as stewards of the environment, he advocated an organizational strategy, called cluster development, that would concentrate living centres and leave as much natural environment as possible to flourish on its own terms. Meanwhile, the 1973 OPEC oil crisis brought the cost of energy into sharp focus and reminded the global community that it depended on a very small number of petroleum-producing countries for its supplies.

Many experts believe that water depletion will be one of the most pressing issues of the 21st century. In addition to human suffering and armed conflicts, unsustainable water use also affects the environment as a whole. By 2025, the number is expected to reach one half to two thirds of the human population, thanks to a combination of many factors, including water pollution, climate change, and water depletion from unsustainable water uses. For example, irrigation of crops can lead to salinization of soil, ultimately leading to desertification and loss of habitat and biodiversity.

WIT Transactions on Ecology and the Environment

WIT Transactions on Ecology and the Environment. Discussing the future of energy production and management in a changing world, this book contains the proceedings of the first international conference on Energy Production and Management in the 21st Century – The Quest for Sustainable Energy. Developed societies require an ever increasing amount of energy resources, which creates complex technological challenges. The idea is to compare conventional energy sources, particularly hydrocarbons, with a number of other ways of producing energy, emphasising new technological developments.
