    Environment, Development and Sustainability is an international, multidisciplinary journal covering all aspects of the environmental impacts of socio-economic development. Concerned with the complex interactions between development and environment, its purpose is to seek ways and means for achieving sustainability in all human activities aimed.   The future of world population growth matters for future human well-being and interactions with the natural environment. We show the extent to which world population growth could be reduced by fully implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) whose health and education targets have direct and indirect consequences on future mortality and fertility trends.

      The relationship between population and the environment is a significant issue due to its impact on chances for achieving sustainable development, especially in developing countries. Previous studies on this relationship have primarily focused on the impact of population growth on the environment, while the impact of the environment on population has received less attention, where .

    Exercise: Compute annual population growth rates for each of the time perioids above: Equation for population growth model is X=X0ert where the original population is X0 mathematical constant: natural log (e = ), represents Malthusian parameter. Population will increase in size to X, over time (t), if rate of increase (r) is population not growing, i.e., r = , then rt = level resilience for population health and well-being outcomes. The publication maintains that strengthening resilience is crucial in order to make progress towards the implementation of both the Health targets and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The publication has three crucial aims: first, to provide a comprehensive.

The authors argue for a model whereby ‘economic welfare’ is a. A sustainable development model (SDM) framework that is inclusive of the “whole” natural environment is presented to illustrate the integration of the sustainable development of the “whole” ecosystem.
