Apart from a few advance countries most of the countries in the world lack basic data for environmental management. As a result they fail to make proper legislation for environment protection.
According to reports collected with the help of extensive research and investigation through internet, it was revealed that most of the countries don’t have a mechanism to collect and manage basic data for environmental management. As a result they suffer from several environmental maladies and its impact on their economy and society can easily be seen.
What is basic data for environmental management?
Nothing can be managed blindly. To manage anything its basic information is must. But in most of the countries there is no concept of developing and regularly updating their environmental profile. Therefore, their top green officials fail to make policies for environmental protection in view of the absence of such important data. Basically this type of data broadly cover two aspects of the environment of a country.
- What environmental resources it has?
- What natural resources it has?
What are environmental resources?
The two major environmental resources are air and water. How much water and what type of water a country has it is must for environmental management of water. Similarly how is air quality and what are its main features is also a must info to look into the environmental affairs of the country. Land is also part of the environmental resources. That is why environment of a country comprises of its water, air and land.
What are natural resources
All the resources given by nature to a country are its natural resources. They include rivers, seas, lakes, plains, mountains, glaciers, valleys, forests, wetlands etc. Their latest information is also must for environmental conservation of the country.
How countries mostly make their environmental profile?
Right now most of the countries develop their environmental profile on the basis of guesstimates. They don’t have any proper system for recording green. Nor they have any system to keep updating this type of info. Therefore, most of the countries develop their environmental profile once and then it lies under thick layer of dust. Interestingly most of the countries develop their environmental profile when they get a chance to have funds from a donor for their environment sector. Otherwise they don’t need such info because they already don’t believe in collective environmental management.
Advance countries do have green data
In advance countries of Europe and US there is proper system of recording and updating the green info to facilitate their environmental management system
. But they also lack latest info of their regions regarding climate change and its impact on life. But their overall situation is not as gloomy in such countries as in most of the African and Asian countries.
Experts believe environmental protection and improvement is almost impossible if a country does not have its updated environmental profile. As a result such countries simply have misleading figures about their environment and can’t move in right direction for its proper care.
