This module will give you a brief overview of renewable and non-renewable resources, resource exploitation and stewardship challenges. It is important to focus on analytical concepts and approaches to problem solving because it will enable you to gain an essential understanding of how to manage resource extraction and resource use and the resulting environmental effects. We will also use an interdisciplinary approach in presenting the concepts in this module. That is to say, we use many different disciplines to explain resource extraction and management. The module begins by briefly explaining the distinction between renewable and non-renewable natural resources in the context of common property, and the differences in how resources are managed. The module then examines three different resource management models, international cooperation, and constraints to implementing international policy at the local level.
