The only way we can do is to look into the root of the climate changes. The root of the climate changes will help to build affordable, scalable solutions towards cleaner, sustainable environments.
The paper puts forward the claim that, should conditions stay the same, particularly: environmental scarcity, global social and economic inequality, the corporation and collaboration in the global political economy and the severe global weather conditions perhaps caused by climate change, issues around the water-food-energy nexus, will perpetually be a hot topic. 2. Green Economy
The challenge is to combine the economics of growth with the economics of equality and social justice.in coming years the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals(SDG) should replace Millennium Development Goals as SDG can expand to include comprehensive measures of sustainable well beings.
