What is RESOURCE CURSE? What does RESOURCE CURSE mean? RESOURCE CURSE meaning - RESOURCE CURSE definition - RESOURCE CURSE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. The resource curse, also known as the paradox of plenty, refers to the paradox that countries with an abundance of natural resources, specifically non-renewable resources like minerals and fuels, tend to have less economic growth, less democracy, and worse development outcomes than countries with fewer natural resources. This is hypothesized to happen for many different reasons, and there are many academic debates about when and why it occurs. Most experts believe the resource curse is not universal or inevitable, but affects certain types of countries or regions under certain conditions. The idea that resources might be more of an economic curse than a blessing began to emerge in debates in the 1950s and 1960s about the economic problems of low and middle-income countries. The term resource curse was first used by Richard Auty in 1993 to describe how countries rich in mineral resources were unable to use that wealth to boost their economies and how, counter-intuitively, these countries had lower economic growth than countries without an abundance of natural resources. An influential study by Jeffrey Sachs and Andrew Warner found a strong correlation between natural resource abundance and poor economic growth. Hundreds of studies have now evaluated the effects of resource wealth on a wide range of economic outcomes, and offered many explanations for how, why, and when a resource curse is likely to occur. While "the lottery analogy has value but also has shortcomings", many observers have likened the resource curse to the difficulties that befall lottery winners who struggle to manage the complex side-effects of newfound wealth. The IMF classifies 51 countries as “resource-rich.” These are countries which derive at least 20% of exports or 20% of fiscal revenue from nonrenewable natural resources. 29 of these countries are low- and lower-middle-income. Common characteristics of these 29 countries include (i) extreme dependence on resource wealth for fiscal revenues, export sales, or both; (ii) low saving rates; (iii) poor growth performance; and (iv) highly volatile resource revenues. A 2016 meta-study finds weak support for the thesis that resource richness adversely affects long-term economic growth. The authors note that "approximately 40% of empirical papers finding a negative effect, 40% finding no effect, and 20% finding a positive effect" but "overall support for the resource curse hypothesis is weak when potential publication bias and method heterogeneity are taken into account." Natural resources are a source of economic rent which can generate large revenues for those controlling them even in the absence of political stability and wider economic growth. Their existence is a potential source of conflict between factions fighting for a share of the revenue, which may take the form of armed separatist conflicts in regions where the resources are produced or internal conflict between different government ministries or departments for access to budgetary allocations. This tends to erode governments' abilities to function effectively. Even when politically stable, countries whose economies are dominated by resource extraction industries tend to be less democratic and more corrupt. According to one academic study, a country that is otherwise typical but has primary commodity exports around 5% of GDP has a 6% risk of conflict, but when exports are 25% of GDP the chance of conflict rises to 33%. "Ethno-political groups are more likely to resort to rebellion rather than using nonviolent means or becoming terrorists when representing regions rich in oil." There are several factors behind the relationship between natural resources and armed conflicts. Resource wealth may increase the vulnerability of countries to conflicts by undermining the quality of governance and economic performance (the "resource curse" argument). Secondly, conflicts can occur over the control and exploitation of resources and the allocation of their revenues (the "resource war" argument). Thirdly, access to resource revenues by belligerents can prolong conflicts (the "conflict resource" argument).

Planet Earth is a truly liberal place when you consider it. It has this incredible air to inhale, fruitful soil for developing fine foodstuffs, and even pleasant sparkly metals like gold and platinum which are amusing to take a gander at (and every so often slaughter each other over). Be that as it may, the planet is less liberal with a couple of things – things we particularly jump at the chance to have in our current lives. As shortage breeds esteem, these five assets are inconceivably significant on the grounds that they are quite not as much as plentiful. What's more, when talking about profitable characteristic assets, we would be delinquent on the off chance that we didn't give a gesture to great old water. Phosphorous may appear to be unendingly bottomless, and for sure it can be found in many places on earth – also inside your own body. Ivory is, tragically, truly profitable. Furthermore, the bigger the piece, the higher the esteem. The most important metal on the planet is not silver or gold. It's not in any case platinum. No, it's great old rhodium.

Close-up Russia's coat of arms on wall 4. SOUNDBITE (English) Angel Gurr�a, Secretary General of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD): "If you take away the oil, there's a huge, huge deficit in the public finances and in your plans you said 4.7 percent deficit, well now we are above 10 percent in the deficit, clearly this is more than double, it's enormous difference, more than double. We have to really bring that down because the volatility of oil prices is something which one must always be ready for." 5. Mid of audience 6. SOUNDBITE (English) Angel Gurr�a, Secretary General of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) "There are a lot of challenges in the business environment. Here Russia does not compare well with the rest of the OECD countries. The business environment in Russia leaves a lot to be desired and here we can do a lot of work to improve it.

SOUNDBITE (English) Angel Gurr�a, Secretary General of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development "The innovation strategy, or the innovation elan or the innovation momentum is still quite sluggish and then there is a relatively low investment and high dependency on things. There's too much dependency on natural resource extraction and then, there's relatively low investment in non-natural resource extraction. " 9. Wide of the end of media conference STORYLINE: The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) presented its economic report on the state of the Russian economy and its review of Russia's labour market and social policies on Monday. The OECD believes the Russian economy is recovering yet the country still needs to foster the process of modernisation to guarantee sustainable long-term economic development. At the presentation of the report in Moscow which took place in the headquarters of Russia's Ministry of Economic Development, OECD Secretary General, Angel Gurr�a, praised Russia's progress in some areas but said there were a number of challenges Russia needed to address. He said the dependence of Russia's public finances on oil revenues needs to be decreased and highlighted that, "the volatility of oil prices is something which one must always be ready for." One of the key criticisms of the report was that Russia is lagging behind many other states in terms of its business environment. "Russia does not compare well with the rest of the OECD countries. The business environment in Russia leaves a lot to be desired and here we can do a lot of work to improve it. There are questions of governance, there are questions of lack of transparency, in some cases of corruption and then, the question of the rule of law." Gurria went on to say that Russia's investment in innovation remains small and the country's economy continues to rely heavily on natural resources extraction. The OECD report on Russia's economic future comes as massive protests grip the country.

FORESTS - A Natural Resource
 
13:11
FORESTS - A Natural Resource A FOREST IS USUALLY DESCRIBED AS A LARGE AREA OF LAND COVERED WITH TREES. HOWEVER, A FOREST HAS MUCH MORE THAN TREES IN IT. THERE ARE SMALL PLANTS SUCH AS HERBS, SHERBS, FERNS, AND MOSSES. MANY KINDS OF ANIMALS MAKE THEIR HOMES IN THE FOREST. MILLIONS OF TINY MICROSCOPIC ORGANISMS ALSO LIVE HERE. BIOTIC FACTORS DEPEND UPON VARIOUS ABIOTIC FACTORS, LIKE CLIMATE, SOIL AND LIVING THINGS AND THE ENVIRONMENT TOGETHER MAKE UP THE ECOSYSTEM IN THE FOREST. THE ECOSYSTEM CONSISTS OF ALL LIVING AND NON-LIVING THINGS IN A PARTICULAR AREA AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH EACH OTHER GREEN PLANTS ARE THE PRODUCERS. THEY PROVIDE FOOD FOR HERBIVOROUS ANIMALS. HERBIVOROUS ARE EATEN BY CARNIVOROUS ANIMALS. SOME ANIMALS ARE OMNIVORES. ANIMALS ARE CONSUMERS ANIMALS AND PLANTS ARE INTERLINKED TOGETHER THROUGH FOOD. THESE LINKAGES OF PLANTS AND ANIMALS FORM FOOD CHAINS AFTER PLANTS AND ANIMALS DIE, THEIR REMAINS ARE BROKEN DOWN BY DECOMPOSERS SUCH AS BACTIRIA AND FUNGI. ANIMALS THAT EAT DEAD ANIMALS ARE CALLED SCAVENGERS. SCAVENGERS EX:- JACKALS AND VULTURES DECOMPOSERS EX:- FUNGI AND BACTIRIA 60% OF THE EARTH’S LAND AREA WAS COVERED WITH FORESTS. TODAY FORESTS OCCOUPY ONLY 30% OF THE LAND AREA. THE GROWING POPULATION MAN’S DEPENDENCE ON FORESTS MADE HIM CUT DOWN TREES INDISCRIMINATELY. THE CUTTING DOWN OF TREES IS CALLED DEFORESTATION. THIS DISTURBES THE BALANCE IN NATURE. IF THE ECOSYSTEMS ARE LEFT UNDISTURBED, NATURE MAINTAINS THE BALANCE. A SPECIES THAT NO LONGER EXISTS IS CALLED EXTINCT. MANY OTHER ANIMALS THAT DEPEND ON PLANTS ALSO DISAPPEARED. EVERY YEAR WE SEE MANY INSTANCES OF PLANTS OR ANIMALS SPECIES BECOMING EXTINCT DUE TO HUMAN ACTIVITIES. WE MAY BE ABLE TO FIND A SUBSISTUTE FOR WOOD, COAL OR FOOD ITEMS, BUT WE CAN NEVER REPLACE AN EXTINCT SPECIES. SOME SPECIES ARE ENDANGERED BECAUSE THEIR NUMBER HAS GONE DOWN TO SUCH A LEVEL THT THEY COULD EASILY BECOME EXTINCT. WHY ARE FORESTS CALLED AS GREEN LUNGS The plants provide oxygen for animal respiration and also absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. In this way plants help in maintaining the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Forests also influence climate, water cycle and air-quality. That is why forests are called “green lungs”.

We also take a look at the management of natural resources on the continent and how an increasing number of Nigerians are in demand for organic food. Nigeria's president has announced that he will be working from home for the next few months. Having just returned from a 100 day absence, questions are raised about Muhammadu Buhari's health. There have long been calls for Africa to reshape its economic models by reducing its reliance on natural resources and diversify its economies. We hear from author N.J Ayuk who believes that much of that criticism is overly negative and shortsighted. And in Nigeria, the demand for organic produce is rocketing year on year. Many of those paying closer attention to the way their food is grown have become accustomed to the choices abroad and head back home to start their own business. http://www.france24.com/en/taxonomy/emission/20464 Visit our website: http://www.france24.com Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://f24.my/youtubeEN Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/FRANCE24.English Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/France24_en

Measuring Livelihoods and Environmental Dependence
 
02:32
CIFOR's Principal Economist, Sven Wunder, discusses why this book was produced, and what is covered in the book. Thousands of surveys on rural livelihoods in developing countries are conducted every year. Unfortunately, many suffer from weaknesses in method and problems in implementation. Quantifying household dependence on multiple environmental resources such as forests, bush, grasslands and rivers is particularly difficult and often simply ignored in these surveys. The results therefore may not reflect rural realities. The 'hidden harvest' from natural resources is too important to livelihoods for development research, policies and practice to ignore. Fieldwork using state-of-the-art methods, especially well-designed household questionnaires, becomes an imperative to adequately capture key dimensions of rural welfare. This book describes how to do a better job when designing and implementing household and village surveys for quantitative assessment of rural livelihoods in developing countries. The book draws heavily on PEN experiences, and is a major output of the PEN project. Seventeen of the 19 contributors to the publication have been involved in PEN as partners or resource persons. The book deals with the entire research process from vague research ideas, formulation of specific hypotheses, data needs, design of surveys and questionnaire, data collection, data management and analysis to presentation of results; it is enriched by numerous practical examples from the field. The book should provide an invaluable guide to methods and a practical handbook for students and professionals.

Russians Laugh at Europe's Dependence on Russian Natural Gas
 
04:10
Russia is consolidating its grip on natural gas-the economic lifeblood of Europe. Furthermore, Moscow is pursuing a comprehensive strategy that could increase Europe's political and economic dependence on Russian natural gas. Such dependence could negatively affect transatlantic relations, common values, goals, strategic objectives, and security policies. Without a policy dialogue and coordination between Washington and European capitals, Europe's strategic drift away from the United States will continue unabated. While Europe and America is trying to figure out what's going on, the Russians are laughing at them...

CBSE Class 10 | Geography | Conservation of Energy |
 
03:25
In this module, you will learn about Energy requirements are rising in all parts of India. We are largely dependent on fuel minerals like coal, petroleum and natural gas to fulfil our energy requirements. Minerals are non-renewable resources. Thus, the supply of coal, petroleum and natural gas is limited. Heavy dependence on fuel minerals for energy is not a sustainable plan to meet our future energy requirements. A sustainable path of energy development involves: Finding renewable, non-conventional sources of energy. Conservation of energy. A lot of energy is wasted in our country through inefficient means of usage. We can conserve fuel minerals by: Forming carpools and using public transport instead of private vehicles. Using better, renewable fuels like biogas in place of coal for cooking purposes. We can conserve energy by: Switching off all lights, fans and electrical devices when not required. Using power saving devices.

Professor JohnBull Season 2 - Episode 5 (Oil Windfall)
 
25:44
As Season 2 of #ProfessorJohnbull enters its 5th episode this Tuesday, the sitcom focuses on some sharp practices in the nation's oil sector. The episode, aptly entitled Oil Windfall, dramatises the negative effects of over-dependence on the black gold as the nation's economic mainstay. Oil Windfall also highlights the way of life among youths in oil producing areas as one of the attendant effects of over-dependence on the natural resource. The discovery of oil in the country in the early 1960s was no doubt a good development which has led to the growth of the nation's economy. But over the years, events and situations have come to show that over-dependence on oil also has its own attendant effects. The essence of Oil Windfall, the 5th episode of Season 2 of Professor Johnbull, is to educate the public on the negative effects of over-dependence on oil by any economy. We hope it will help in educating our viewers that there are other potential natural resources other than oil that we can tap into for our existence. Slated for airing on NTA Network, NTA International on DSTV Channel 251 and NTA on StarTimes at 8.30 pm tonight, the episode will feature the villain, Samson (Oguns Baba), who delivered his lines perfectly with his unadulterated "Waffi" accent. The new episode puts viewers in suspense as it dissects the real essence of oil windfall. Is Samson genuinely fraudulent or just over-ambitious? What is Professor Johnbull's response to the agitation of the victims? Tune in tonight at 8.30pm on NTA Network, NTA Intl on DSTV Channel 251 & NTA on StarTimes to find out.

Over the last decade Kazakhstan and Russia have become more dependent on oil, yet their governments still depend less on natural resources than most natural resource based economies. Tax receipts from natural resource business contribute less than half of total government revenues, according to Dr. Ivailo Izvorski, manager of European and Central Asian macroeconomics at The World Bank and the author of a report from The World Bank on natural resource dependence and economic development. According to him, the revenue picture is possible because the countries have reinvested their natural resource profits.

Environmental Governance in Mongolia: Challenges and Prospects | Sanchir Jargalsaikhan
 
41:56
Event: ACMS Speaker Series Speaker: Sanchir Jargalsaikhan, political scientist, activist, and development policy specialist broadly concerned with the economic and political development in Mongolia and in the Global South Title of Presentation: Environmental Governance in Mongolia: Challenges and Prospects Date: June 19, 2018 The biggest challenge Mongolia faces in the present is how to limit the negative consequences related to overexploitation of the environment and unsustainable use of natural resources. An effective legal system that regulates human activities is essential in achieving sustainable development goals (SDGs). Given the high dependence of Mongolia’s economy on the exploitation of natural resources, effective environmental law and policy, along with the capacity to implement those laws should be of utmost priority. Since the mid-20th century, Mongolia has seen rapid social development and industrialization in line with the Soviet Union’s modernization policy. An economy based on nomadic pastoralism was transformed towards a semi-industrial economy in a span of a few decades. As was the case with many rapidly industrialized countries of that time, environmental management practices were generally absent. Since the 1990’s, over 30 environmental laws, as well as several hundred environmental regulations and bylaws were approved. However, effective environmental governance includes, not only laws and policies, but enforcement mechanisms and bureaucratic capacity to implement the former. Country Safeguard System (CSS) assessment is designed to tackle the above issues by taking into account intersecting environmental, economic, and political factors to gauge the effectiveness of the country’s environmental governance. Safeguards cover a variety of substantive areas in environmental and social management. It refers to a country’s “legal and institutional framework, consisting of its national, sub-national, or sector implementing institutions and relevant laws, regulations, rules, and procedures that pertain to the safeguard policy areas. More specifically, “laws, regulations, rules, and procedures on the policy areas of environment, involuntary resettlement, and indigenous people’s safeguards, and their implementing institutions” are regarded as CSS mechanisms. CSS also covers domestic legal systems, which include laws aimed at protecting the environment and natural resources and laws that protect procedural rights, including access to information and grievance procedures. Finally, it covers international safeguard standards, which are regulated by international environmental and human rights agreements. This presentation is based on a first comprehensive study that analyzes its environmental governance.
