Environmental Problems and Their Solutions

Rapidly increasing population, over-industrialization, and mechanization, pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, and chemicals are some of the reasons for the environmental problems we’re facing today.

Air, water, and land pollution have reached a level where all lives are in danger.

Urban environmental problems were born from the consequences of lack of accommodation: overcrowding, slum and squatter housing.

Disorganized and unplanned urbanization has caused problems of infrastructure, sewer systems, solid waste collection, and storage.

Another important environmental problem is rapid population growth. Turkey has one of the highest population growth rate among the OECD countries. According to the population forecasting of UN, Turkey’s population is expected to rise to 92 million by 2025.

Unplanned urbanization leads to unplanned industrialization. When industrial waste isn’t removed regularly, the problems become insoluble.

 

Actions we must take to solve environmental problems

  • An effective environmental auditing system.
  • Raising next generations with environmental consciousness.
  • Increasing the number of non-governmental organizations.
  • Non-governmental organizations and public institutions must work together.
  • Planned urbanization principles must be implemented.
  • Forestation and preservation of present forests.
  • Organized and environmentally conscious industry zones must be created.
  • Waste sorting.
  • High grade fuel must be used.
  • Efficient laws should be made to prevent environmental issues.
  • Ministry of environment and forestry staff must be supported for more efficient work.
  • Local administrations must prioritize environmental issues.
  • Incentive implementations must be made.
  • İnformations systems must be used efficiently to observe and accurately evaluate the consequences of environmental problems.
