Environmental Monitoring And Sustainable Development


  • Nicoara Mihaela



The interest of any individual to achieve progress and growth and the entrepreneur's desire to make a profit at all costs, show that humans have a consumptive and destructive nature, that is, man has often forgotten that he is part of the natural system, so that imbalances have been created, leading on the long-term to the deterioration, degradation and destruction of the natural environment, the effects being already felt worldwide. Educating and training people is an essential element that must be included in all programs regarding ecology and sustainable development, the only way to ensure a future. In order to eliminate the repercussions of climate change, population growth, poverty, water crisis, drought, depletion of resources, loss of biodiversity and to ensure social progress, economic and human development, clear actions are necessary, summarized in specific and measurable objectives, that are subject to some of the national strategies . The ecological / integrated monitoring involves obtaining an accurate, overall image of the environment's quality state at a moment in time as well as the evolution tendency on the two basic components - the biotic and abiotic environment - in their interaction. Sustainable development allows a nation to plan, implement and monitor the progress of society in order to achieve long-term goals, to meet the needs of current generations, but without preventing future generations to meet their own needs. We need to establish specific projects that enable us move on to a high added value generating model, generated by the interest in knowledge and innovation, aimed at continuously improving the quality of life of humans and the relationships between them, in harmony with the natural environment. Given the fact that Romania has an economy based on intensive use of resources and the natural capital is facing the risk of damage that may become irreversible, the assimilation and practical application of all the principles and practices of sustainable development is required. To integrate all the objectives of sustainable development at the heart of economic activity one should consider the tax and legal regulations to bring changes in the way of production and consumption.
