Question by flyingangel: Environmental impact of population in both developed and developing countries?
What is the environmental impact of population in developed and developing countries? How are they similar and how are they different?
Answer by Allen
Well this is quite straightforward In developed countries, the environmental impact is quite large. This is because each individual uses up more resources and has a large ecological footprint. In other words, each person consumes more than each person in develloping countries. Likewise, in developed countries, more buildings and paved roads have a detrimental effect on the environment. This is because they disturb natura cycles such as the water cycle. As for developing countries, the impact is just as big, if not bigger. This is because each family feels a need to have more children due to a higher average infant mortality rate. This means more people and thus more resource needs. Also, in developing countries, people tend to gather as much resources as they can, and burn wood for energy and fires for cooking. This emits c02 into the atmosphere, jusst as cars in developed countries. The list goes on and on. hope that helped l
