Essay: Conservation of the environment-Preferences
Any successful economies around the globe must in the first place get its preferences test right. It is evident that developed countries had to put their economic prosperity firs before environment conservation. This dates back from the industrial revolution where countries engaged in fierce economic battles with their rival forgetting environmental concerns. His lead to destruction of their environments and subsequent economic strength that places them in their current position as developed countries. The developing world has the highest percentage of natural environments, which have remained intact for quite some time. This has however experienced the far-reaching effects of environmental degradation elsewhere, to be specific developed countries.
As third world countries continue wallowing in poverty, it will be very inappropriate to put any preconditions for environmental aid. The US for instance advices other nations to prioritize conservation of the environment forgetting that history has it that the US itself had to evade similar measures to become rich. This strategy is seen by many developing countries as hypocritical further derailing efforts to conserve the environment. If developed countries feel sufficiently philanthropic about environment conservation funds, they should not offer the same bearing in mind that developing countries, just like the have other economic obligations. Giving conditions will only result I neglect by the developing nations who are focusing on economic ladder to achieve similar status as heir “green greedy” counterparts. Developed nations should also allow third world nations to get their priorities well before bagging them with the need to conserve the environment first. Giving the chance will not only encourage conservation but also ensure funds donated are properly utilized. Therefore forcing developing countries to take action should not be an option for this efforts to succeed.
