Require changes in public policies, green technologies, green jobs, environmental education and international public affairs. Our main challenge as developing countries is to reach a sustainable.

The job outlook for Environmental Policy and Environmental Planning careers is fantastic. Both fields are projected to grow faster than average, largely due to the astronomical population growth, worsening environmental conditions, the rapid development of sustainable technologies, and the constant reconsideration of environmental policies.

Environmental law, or sometimes known as environmental and natural resources law, is a term used to explain regulations, statutes, local, national and international legislation, and treaties designed to protect the environment from damage and to explain the legal consequences of such damage towards governments or private entities or individuals.

Environmental remediation deals with the removal of pollution or contaminants from environmental media such as soil, groundwater, sediment, or surface water.

Remedial action is generally subject to an array of regulatory requirements, and may also be based on assessments of human health and ecological risks where no legislative standards exist, or where standards are advisory.

Environmental degradation is the exhaustion of the world's natural resources: land, air, water, soil, etc. It occurs due to crimes committed by humans against nature. Individuals are disposing of wastes that pollute the environment at rates exceeding the wastes’ rate of decomposition or dissipation and are overusing the renewable resources.
