Because these are
not unlimited and with the human population increasing at a
tremendous rate due to improvement in health-care, the demand for all
resources is increasing at an exponential rate. The management of
natural resources requires a long-term perspective so that these will
last for the generations to come and will not merely be exploited to the
hilt for short term gains. This management should also ensure equitable
distribution of resources so that all, and not just a handful of rich and

powerful people, benefit from the development of these resources.

2. People should at once stop the over utilization of natural resources instead they must be properly used.

3. We should make habit for waste disposal, compose and to restore biodiversity.

4. Mixed cropping, crop rotation, and proper use of fertilizer, insecticide and pesticides should be taught to farmers. Encourage the use of manures, biofertilizers and organic fertilizers.

5. We should protect wildlife. Though hunting is not allowed even then the persons are doing so. For this educated young should teach the lesson of wildlife act.

6. We must develop energy saving methods to avoid wastage of energy. We should remember "energy saved is energy produced."

7. Use drip irrigation and sprinkling irrigation to improve irrigation efficiency and reduce evaporation.

8. Utilize renewable energy sources as much as possible. Encourage use of solar cooker, pump etc.
