Environmental Sustainability

Natural resources such as water, land, and energy are necessary for human life but are, for the most part, finite in quantity.

This and their unequal distribution over the world often makes them the subject of conflict. Meanwhile, climate change precipitates new environmental conditions and exacerbates challenges like drought and water scarcity. How can countries work in concert to achieve smart solutions in energy, mitigate resource scarcity, and avoid the worst effects of environmental degradation and climate change?
