An Overview of Some Population-Development-Environment Interactions in Mexico
This paper encompasses overviews of Mexico's population, development, and environment and briefly discusses some population-development-environment (PDE) interactions in Mexico. First, a demographic description presents a retrospective view of mortality, fertility, literacy, age composition, migration, population density as well as a sketchy perspective of population growth and age composition. Next, the development overview considers past trends of some macro-economic indicators and reviews the performance of some prior government development policies. The overview of the environment discusses problems of soil and biotic erosion, water quality and quantity, and air pollution. Finally, some remarks about future population-development- environment interactions are presented. The need to establish a shared vision of PDE at the country level and to further expand the purposefulness of socio-ecological systems to reduce relevant uncertainty is highlighted.
