Global issues population and resources
Factors affecting the level of demand for resources
Economic growth: as a nation gets richer people can afford more luxuries,
increasing demand for resources that fuel and make them
Population growth: more people increase demand
Societal values: changes in culture, higher expectation of living standards
Availability: amount of resources available to produce the product and the
amount of technology needed to produce resources
Employment structure: tertiary and secondary economies demand more
resources to fuel industry than primary economies that need less as they
have less of a demand for resources to fuel their economy. Therefore the
demand for resources is greater in areas that are developing such as NIC's
than areas that haven't started to develop or have already developed.
Religion/culture: some religions don't each certain foods such as Jews not
eating pork, so Jewish communities have lower demand for meat.
