explain how environmental problems are both poverty induced as well as consequence of affluence.(6 marks)

Dear Student, it is a good question that you have asked.
Environmental problems are very much poverty induced as well as a consequence of affluence. Taking the poverty factor first, with increasing poverty and the limited natural resources, rural poor are compelled to cut down trees in order to fulfil their basic needs of shelter, food and fuel. This cutting down of trees harms the natural environment by leading to a massive erosion of natural capital. Also, with rising growth and affluence, industrialisation is increasing. This increase of industries and machines in turn, is leading to environment problems such as water pollution and air pollution, thus, contributing to environment degradation and pollution. Hence, we can say that environment problems are infact a result of rising poverty and affluence.
