Natural resource management

While it is surprisingly difficult to define natural resource, the World Bank offers a helpful definition of

     natural resource management:

          "The sustainable utilization of major natural resources, such as land, water, air, minerals,

          forests, fisheries, and wild flora and fauna. Together, these resources provide the ecosystem

          services that underpin human life."

One could make the case that every page at concerns natural resources, but this section

     collates information that is self-described as concerning the generic topic of "natural resources"

     and "natural resource management" without any other more specific indicators.
