Nowadays environmental problems are too big to be managed by individual persons or individual countries. In other words, it is an international problem. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
An essential problem of the 21st century is world pollution. Currently the environment is so contaminated that urgent measures should be taken. A single individual cannot be blamed for the world pollution, however every person should take care of his or her habitat. In addition, it is vital that environmental issues are treated internationally.
Lately, many presentations, conferences and international summits are held to deal with waste treatment, recycling, and soil and water contamination. joint efforts and consolidation can only help in the mutual war the ongoing environmental disaster. For instance, governments should offer support to companies and organizations, involved in manufacturing, industry or agriculture in order to find environment-friendly approaches. These could be special law regulations, recycling programs, helping courses in order to implement ISO certificates and many more.
However, the influence of individuals over environment should not be ignored. If we do not that our planet is our home, we will never be able to take care of it. We have to contribute every day to the preservation of nature and environment. For example, always remember to save energy by switching off lamps, computers and everything that we do not use. Our next obligation is to separate waste and throw bulk only in the designated areas. Driving vehicles can also be environment friendly. For example, we have to avoid accelerating the engines too rapidly or using the air conditioning in the country, where it would be better to save energy and simply open the windows.
To sum up, environmental problems should be handled by local and international authorities as well as individuals. Every single person should take care of the environment, moreover we have to bring up our children to be conscious citizens of a clean and preserved planet.

The greatest challenge is the rapid growth of population. Population, poverty and environment are inter-related. The nexus between poverty and environmental degradation is a major issue as vast majority of people depends on the natural resources of country for their basic needs. About 40 per cent are below poverty line.
The environmental degration has adversely affected the poor who depend upon natural resources. Henceforth, both poverty and environmental degradation are two facets of same challenge and it is widely recognised that population growth is a function of poverty.
The mountainous terrains of the Himalayas and North East States are rapidly losing their forests and trees, which in turn enhances the removal of top soils and results in landslides and floods.
India has a rich flora. The Botanical Survey of India has reported nearly 49000 species of plants after surveying about 70 per cent of India’s geographical area. But due to deforestation about 1336 plant species are considered as endangered. The main causes for loss of flora and fauna are pollution, over exploitation, habitat destruction & toxic substances in water, floods, cyclones etc.
