The Johannesburg Summit Provided the Sustainable Development as a Way In Saving Our Planet Earth.
In 1992 World Summit held in Rio de Janeiro, getting rid of pollution was the main agenda as well as making our planet healthy amid industrial progress. However the ratification and implementation of this grand endeavor didnt materialize, the air we breathe is still enveloped with harmful pollutions, the hole in our ozone layer is getting bigger, the seas and oceans are battered with different problems and issues, and rain forests that serves as a refuge to a delicate ecological balance continues to dwindles.Ten years later in the last 2002 summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, South Africa, different strategies were dished out and placed in the drawing table. Smarter than the last time the summiteers gave importance of development in saving our very planet we live in. This time, it is well-crafted and well-planned that will lead us to a green century equipped with green approach to deal with present bothering problems we're now facing to preserve our planet. The sustainable development aim is to expand the source of food for all people, so that they will no longer depend and draw resources from the wild, thus the wilderness and the oceans will have more time to recuperate and regenerate, and eventually be preserved.

The planet we call our home...

- In parts of the world where poverty is prevalent, like for instance in Africa, diseases like AIDS, malaria and cholera are widely experienced and causes deaths. In the worldwide level at least 68 million are expected to die of AIDS by 2020, a bulk of these which is around 55 million will come from the Sub-Saharan region in Africa. - Access to family planning and health care for youths and women will be given importance.

Population explosion is one of the main issue in the Summit.

WATER
- It is very ironic that the world is surrounded by water and only 2.5% of it is fresh water and a fraction of it is accessible. - We may face serious water problems, if we will not use our water supply well. - The summit endorses More crop per crop mentality, an approach which is about efficient irrigation technique and planting crop varieties that need less water

Also a perennial problem is water shortage in many countries.

FOOD
- Whipping out and erecting agricultural policies Is one of the core part of the Sustainable Development. - Planting and replanting the same crops, reliance to pest control and slash-burn method of farming (we call this as kaingin in Philippines) degrades the nutrient contents of the soil and making them vulnerable to pests. - Better crop rotation and irrigation is urged to be implemented across the planet to guarantee good yield as far as farmers are concerned. - Different research organizations in the world has developed better varieties of corn, cassava, and potato. These achievements must be emulated by other countries .

The Summit discuss about how to yield produce with efficiency.

ENERGY AND CLIMATE


- Power demands of developing countries are expected to grow by 2.5% annually. If those demand are not provided reliance on burning fossil fuels (gas, oil and coal) might be an alternative, if this happens carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases will be produced in our atmosphere, a scenario that will promote global warming paving the way for flooding in lowland areas (because of the rise of

BIODIVERSITY
- More than 11,000 species of animals and plants are threatened to extinction, one third of our corals reefs are expected to disappear after 30 years and areas covered with forests across the planet will continue to decrease each year. Many species of animals that will disappear in the coming years are source of food and medicine for humans. Once a part of the ecosystem is sliced for human habitation and/or farming, expect chain reaction to take place, when you upset the balance of nature you are as well harming some areas you dont want to disturb. The problems presented in the 2002 summit in Johannesburg is worse compared to that of 1992 summit in Rio de Janeiro. The summit in in Rio de Janeiro is about getting rid of the plague that causes environmental deterioration and degradation. While that of Johannesburgs its totally different but perhaps better and even more brilliant, the battle plan that was generated in this particular summit is to solve mans woes to keep the environment intact.

Good suggestions my friend. We got to keep on trying to save our world ! In my opinion we need a holistic solution to make sure that what we do is structural and not just temporarily or that solutions have bad side-effects. I have made a suggestion for such a solution in my book 'how to save our world', including a plan how to realize that solution.

Excellent, evergreen Hub. I came to conclusion that we do not need to save our planet, only ourselves. If humans disappear from Earth (because of effects of climate change progressing), planet will recover, even for million years. In order to deserve living here in the future, we need to change. Thank you for this article!

Hi General! It seems, You are taking Yourself and so others too seriously! In no way, my dear General, I wanted to touch your 'rights' or even thinking to take anything away. But I can understand that if you see yourself as a 'General' then this the highest defence authority and your thinking in the first place goes around this. Forgive me, that I entered your space without the respect you are expecting naturally from us ordinary civilians! Saludos! BeiYin PS: I'm not 'truly funny' - like your grand son.

Yeah we are indeed manipulated by those influential and powerful people, but who cares, I am just trying to share what I know in somehow cushioning the impact of the destructive behavior of human beings towards their environment... and I don't believe I can save the planet LOL Beijin you are truly funny, I never stated I can do that hehehe you are chirping at the wrong hub but with genuine care for the environment I am sharing what I know and that is my right you cannot take that away... and you know what hehehe... you are always perfect to your opinion... and thanks for the visit... @CJ and truepal--- thanks for the kind words I really appreciate it...

If your profile picture is an actual photo of you, then your way to express yourself is astonishing but also it is not surprising that you demonstrate the normal ignorance and naivety of your young age. Don't you realize yet, that this world is reigned and manipulated by those power people who are obsessed in their games and that they are ruling every thing that happens on this planet? Don't you know that the materialistic world view of the wast majority of people are causing that a few can manipulate all? Don't you know that people are not capable to be responsible for themselves and that they depend on authorities? Don't you see from simple observing of your surrounding, that people are dump and dull and not even able to do the most simple things like separating their rubbish? Don't you see that people are not much more aware like chicken that are only interested in food in front of their nose, making a lot of noise when finally they were laying an egg? You are doing the same by looking at things like water, air and trees, - believing you can save the planet by changing just the result of some thing you are not even asking about.

converted by Web2PDFConvert.com

Humanity and the earth only can be saved when people wake up and see that they are causing the destruction of our planet, the health of all and of all being. As long as people stay in dependency and not change their attitude, behavior and their world view, there is little hope left that any thing will change. Your writing for sure is coming out of a good intention, but I'm sorry to say it so direct: It is just a 'witz' and I can't laugh about it. Sorry! BeiYin

Curious Jen 22 months ago

An excellent and insightful hub. It is particularly timely as the Copenhagen talks have just ended with very little success. I live in Nicaragua for most of the year and we have water issues. There is a company down here that sells machines (for about 1K) that pulls up to 60 litres of fresh water out of the air everyday. The price tag is high, and much too high for the average Nicaraguan, but perhaps a cheaper version of this machine can be developed.

Yeah, you heard of George Carlin (comedian)? He has a great video on Youtube named 'Saving the Planet', and every single point he makes in a comedy way, is indeed true. We are to blame, and we think we will cause huge damage. What about volcanoes, Tsunamis, earthquakes etc. We think we can do more damage then those. I don't think so, not for years to come.

Population control is so amazing in Europe specially. I researched the other day about his subject. In the coming years, instead of increasing the population, we see Europe have less population rates and even going down. This is what we should do. I heard also in China that you're allowed to have one child only. Now in My country, the government declared that they will accept only the first two children in their schools in an attempt to reduce the population rate... More population means more pollution for sure and less water and less food and more processed junk food and
