Problem

Nationalistically determined development of natural resources

Other Names:
Parochial planning for natural resource extraction
Nature:

There tends to be a feeling of helplessness when faced with the complexity of an increasingly unbalanced ecological system, and little capability of creating an equitable distribution of basic raw materials. Little research is being done in the area of developing access to resources, which tends to be determined by nationalistic, short-term plans with no regard for local community considerations or global requirements. The result is an overemphasis on profits, leading to uneven resource development and extraction.
