Blending Indigenous Knowledge with Scientific Knowledge: Integrating Eco-Literacies for Effective Biodiversity Management.

This way of life encouraged shifting cultivation, a modern agriculture practice they knew nothing about. The Scientific Theorists might have tried to drift away from the peculiarity in Man interactions with nature, but their fundamentals are still rooted in these age-old practices.

Integrating the Protection of Nature in Infrastructure Development-With Focus on Africa.

After the Industrial revolution in the Western world, the import and export business scheme all around the world changed. Africa became the sole exporter of raw materials, and begun importing manufactured goods... With this new concept that ‘they’ (developed nations) introduced-Sustainable Development, Africa can incorporate a form of development that will prioritize their resource preservation, while maximizing infrastructural development. I’m not going to preach the science of not cutting trees, but rather put forth a way in which species can survive during progression.

In the Context of High Human Density and Scarcity of Farm Land, how can we address Sustainable Management of Forests?

The forest being a habitat for several life forms and the primary producer in the food chain, plays so many important roles in human livelihood and welfare. Increasing population size has affected the quantity of forest trees, which has impacted the ecosystem of flora and fauna. Zero hunger means: creating more food, more food equals: more survivability, more survivability equals: increase in population. Don't get it twisted, I'm not saying zero hunger should not be address, am stressing the need to maintain the present population.

The Way Forward!

Over the past twenty years, from the introduction of the Millennium Development Goals and the Sustainable Development Goals, we have believed that the change we need is more theoretical and should be gradual. But with the onset of these present activities, the World needs to understand the change that is needed. These theoretical changes need to be applied from a changed mindset with in an instant. The time for implementation can no longer be adjourn, the earth is signaling us to take an action now. Our actions to either leave it or conserve it, is no longer up to us; the environment is demanding us. These demands have shown itself in forms of uncontrolled disease outbreaks, climate change, cataclysmic earthquakes, droughts; and we are still waiting! Why are we waiting?

Review of Global Forest Status

The decade of the 2010s experienced the rise in unpreceded new commitments from government and private organizations alike to bring deforestation to a standstill. Unfortunately, looking back through the previous years, it is also clear that the world has fallen short on achieving its forest goals. While the impacts of climate change are being felt (2019 as recorded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration |NASA|, was the second hottest year in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration |NOAA| 140-year climate record just behind 2016 ); an invaluable climate change tools, the forest is still being lost at high rates.

An Envision World that incorporates Sustainable Waste Management.

An envision world that fosters Sustainable Waste Management will contribute to sustainable cities, energy generation, pollution reduction, agricultural activities that will end hunger and other interconnected benefits. This world will not differentiate humans from other resources, but rather prioritise the roles of each natural resource; pointing out that resources depend on each other for survival.

Review Paper on UNCED (Agenda 21), outlining its specific relevance or application to Liberia’s Sustainable Development.

“Humanity stands at a defining moment in history”, the time in history at which human activities began to degrade the environment; nations face crisis of poor health services, huge rate of biodiversity loss, climate change and more dilapidation of the ecosystem. Countries gathered together to collaborate and establish plans that will conserve natural resources. The Agenda 21, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the statement of principles for the sustainable management of Forests was adopted by more than 178 Governments at the UNCED
