GREEN_SKILLS.pptx

  1. 1. GREEN SKILLS Demonstrate the knowledge of the factors influencing natural resource conservation
  2. 2. Introduction to Environment • Definition- Environment The word Environment is derived from the French word “Environ” which means “surrounding”. Our surrounding includes biotic factors like human beings, Plants, animals, microbes, etc and abiotic factors such as light, air, water, soil, etc. • Components of Environment Our environment has been classified into four major components: 1.Hydrosphere, 2.Lithosphere, 3.Atmosphere, 4.Biosphere. But it can be roughly divided into two types such as (a) Micro environment and (b) Macro environment. It can also be divided into two other types such as (c) Physical and (d) biotic environment.
  3. 3. Relationship between Society & Environment The history of man and human society can be vividly described as been characterized by continues interaction between man and his environment. It is interesting to note that this interaction between man and the environment has been enduring over time and the nature of this interaction has been changing as the human society changes in its organization, structure and advancement in technology (Sibiri 2009). The human society does not exist in a vacuum but within a physical environment, hence the importance of this dyadic relationship is underscored in the sense that man‘s survival is entirely predicated on the environment‘s capacity to sustain his welfare needs (food, shelter and clothing.
  4. 4. Ecosystem An ecosystem is a natural unit consisting of all plants, animals and micro-organisms (biotic factors) in an area functioning together with all of the non-living physical (abiotic) factors of the environment.
  5. 5. Natural 1.Terrestrial ecosystems (grasslands, forests, desert ecosystems) 2.Aquatic ecosystem a. Lentic (Stagnant water) like lake, ponds etc. b. Lotic (Flowing water) like river, ocean, sea, etc. Artificial 1.A crop land, garden, aquarium, park, kitchen garden. Types
  6. 6. Factors causing imbalance
  7. 7. Natural resource conservation Conservation is the proper management of a natural resource to prevent its exploitation, destruction or degradation.
  8. 8. Classification of natural resources Natural Resources Artificial (e.g. electricity) Inexhaustible (e.g. solar energy, wind, rainfall, tidal energy) Exhaustible Non-renewable (e.g. coal, petroleum, iron, biological species) Renewable (e.g. wind, water, forests)
  9. 9. Need for Conservation of Natural Resources • To maintain ecological balance for supporting life. • To preserve different kinds of species (biodiversity). • To make the resources available for present and future generation. • To ensure the survival of human race.
  10. 10. Environment protection & conservation The protection of environment is needed for sustainable development. The Industrial pollution, degradation of forests, depletion of ozone layer, the green house gases results in global warming and climate which will have an adverse impact on environment and human health.
  11. 11. • Forest Conservation • Protection of Wetlands • Conservation of Biodiversity • Wildlife Conservation • Ozone Depletion
  12. 12. Describe the importance of Green economy & Green skills
  13. 13. Definition of green economy The green economy is defined as economy that aims at reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities, and that aims for sustainable development without degrading the environment.
  14. 14. The 5 principles of Green economy • The Wellbeing Principle • The Justice Principle • The Planetary Boundaries Principle • The Efficiency and Sufficiency Principle • The Good Governance Principle
  15. 15. Importance of Green economy In a green economy, growth in income and employment should be driven by public and private investments that reduce carbon emissions and pollution, enhance energy and resource efficiency, and prevent the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
