Abstract

Few issues excite as much interest and concern in contemporary economics as those related to environment. Many long term environmental problems are intergenerational, in the sense that they affect primarily future generations, and derive from the use of modern agricultural technology or extension of agriculture into environmentally fragile areas to augment food supplies, as well as from pollution due to rapid urbanization and industrialization or from too rapid exploitation of exhaustible energy and other natural resources. The purpose of this essay is to explore the connections among population growth, agricultural development, and the quality of environment. Peu de sujets suscitent autant d’intérêt et d’inquiétude dans l’économie contemporaine que ceux reliés à l’environnement. Plusieurs problèmes environnementaux à long terme sont de nature intergénérationnelle, c’est-à-dire qu’ils affectent principalement les générations futures; ils sont le résultat de l’utilisation de la technologie agricole moderne, d’une extension de l’agriculture dans des secteurs fragiles sur le plan environnemental dans le but d’augmenter la production alimentaire, de la pollution due à l’urbanisation et à l’industrialisation rapide, ou d’une exploitation trop précipitée de l’énergie non renouvelable et d’autres ressources naturelles. Le but de cet essai est d’explorer les liens entre la croissance de la population, le développement agricole et la qualité de l’environnement.
