The Resource Available Affecting Population Every day the world in increasing in number; however this has a possibility of becoming a negative thing. With a continuous increase in population there will not be enough other resources such as food and fuel to supply everyone appropriately. Overpopulation is a problem for every country, especially developing countries, due to lack of proper resources. Some resources that affect population numbers are money education and health care. These are all factors that must be evaluated to find a solution to overpopulation.
By taking care of these three resources, it can ensure the stabilization of other necessary resources. Money is a great resource that is needed to help stabilize the population within developing countries. Too often poor families do not have sufficient funds to always be buying contraceptives, such as temporary or permanent sterilizations. Temporary sterilization is the different types of contraceptives that are typically available at common stores, which are reversible in the case, that a couple would want more children. However, permanent sterilization can be done to both men and women.
It is a permanent procedure that can tie the woman’s fallopian tubes, or the men’s vas deferens, which is where sperm passes through. Yet money is needed for all this. Money also provides a way to fund better education. All in all, having the sufficient funds affects the overall population. According to Kukreja, “Most developing nations have large number of people who are illiterate, live below the poverty line and have little or no knowledge about family planning. ”A better education is a required resource to obtaining a desired and proper population number.
Having the correct education means gaining improved knowledge on family planning. Learning about family planning provides the awareness on how and when to plan your own family size. Through education, you would also be able to comprehend the issues we face with overpopulation, and as a result be more cautious with your own actions. A higher education provides knowledge, a better job and results in more funds to better control your family life with the accurate use of contraceptives. Providing low cost or free health care would help many as well as alleviate the stressor of overpopulation.
Having health care available to the poor would provide them with access to the proper contraceptives or sterilizations, suitable for their own family. Better precautions would also be taken if they had the right care available to them. By improving people’s quality of life they can be much for productive in their work places. With health comes strength to do a better job which ultimately provides more money. This will lower population numbers considerably. The three resources mentioned are all effects that contribute to the cause of overpopulation.
By considering and taking action with the three different factors, developing counties could be a little more at peace. It is the hope that everyone around the world can be properly supplied with all resources on this earth, but the world can become a better place for everyone if the appropriate precautions are taken. Money, education and health care will lower the rate of population increase if taken care of through responsible actions by everyone. Work Cited “Contraception. ” (Birth Control). N. p. , n. d.
