Question and answer
In what ways does poverty lead to environmental degradation?
The poor do not willfully degrade the environment but poor families often lack the resources to avoid degrading their environment. The very poor, struggling at the edge of subsistence, are preoccupied with day to day survival. [ It is not that the poor have inherently short horizons; poor communities often have a strong ethic of stewardship in managing their traditional lands. ]
