Environment - Robust Development While Managing Risks - 8
Resolution #139: Environment - Robust Development While Managing Risks - 8 (Official French version)
Poverty can create the worst environmental problems. Poorly fed and poorly housed people do not care about the long-term preservation of their environment because they have only one concern, i.e. to meet their basic needs. The economic development of poor countries must be a priority to improve the quality of the environment on our planet. Québec can do its part to help developing countries reduce their environmental problems by helping them grow their economies through international trade. By fostering science and economic development, Québec can also help reduce disease and malnutrition worldwide.
