sustainability are illustrated by the high cost involved in the production and processing of food. It makes food expensive and thus cannot be afforded by everyone (Baldwin & Wilberforce, 2012). The social issues are demonstrated by hunger where some people in the community lack food and while others have surplus. In some cultures people believe in drought-resistant crops (Baldwin & Wilberforce, 2012). These crops do well even in dry areas. In this topic, the aspects manifest themselves equally since all them are discussed in the notes. I think that food sustainability should further be enhanced through the use of better storage methods and also use of modern methods of agriculture such as irrigation.

SUSTAINABLITY AND NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT 5 Conclusion The idea of sustainability aims at regulating the use of the natural resources so that they are not depleted. Resources such as water and food should be available always, and this can be done through sustainable use. For water, sustainability can be enhanced through water harvesting, storage, etc. while food sustainability can also be realized through managing the food cycle.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
