Natural Resource Use

Graded research paper in Economics, 12th grade spring 2015.


Bjornar Urang Funderud, 13.04.2015

Corresponding learning expectations:


1: I know the main obstacles to sustainable development and identify
where my own spending patterns are in disharmony with it.
2: I suggest ways to correct for market failure in the use of natural
resources.
3: I create a database for comparing national natural resource use and
other measures of inequality.
Your end product is a research paper, following the structure below.
Deadline: 08.05.15.
Suptopic
-Introduction: What is the natural
resource used for? Is it renewable or
non-renewable? How much of it is
recycled?

-According to the Brundtland


Commission (1987 -see below), what is
sustainable development? What would
be sustainable use of the resource over
time? And how should the resource be
distributed among all the people in the
world, according to the definition?
-Market failure. What is market failure?
Which environmental/social costs
related to the consumption of this
natural resource are not reflected in its
price?
-Show which 3 countries in the world
consume most of this resource per
capita. How does this compare to world
average per capita production? Show
how the usage of the natural resource
is divided on the worlds population.

research paper by the due date. Make a 20 minute, high-quality draft
presentation after making an agreement with me. Receive feed-back,
improve the presentation and present in class.

Referencing: You have minimum numbers for bibliographic entries per


topic covered in your essay. Of course you can use one source several times,
but you need to find enough references to meet the minimum required
number of separate entries.
Your bibliography should be arranged alphabetically under your conclusion.
Each entry in your bibliography must be referred to in the text. Likewise; all
references in the text needs a bibliographic entry. Texts with incorrect or
insufficient referencing will result in Progress.
Formats for in-text referencing:

Sustainable development is: "Development which meets the needs of


current generations without compromising the ability of future generations
to meet their own needs". (Brundtland Commission, 1987)
Interpretation: Sustainability is about sharing; with the current world
population and with all new generations. Both renewable and non-renewable
resources are distributed to the people in the world that need them.
Renewable resources are used in such a way that it does not hinder the
renewal of the resource. Non-renewable resources are used in such a way
that it allows us time to fully develop alternatives before the resource is fully
consumed.
