The department of natural recourses

Since the creation of man, there has been a continuous relationship and reliance on the earth's natural resources to meet the needs and necessities of living beings and human societies. Natural resource management is defined as; Governance and management of natural resources such as plants, animals, land, water, soil, mineral reserves, forests, grasslands, agricultural areas, pastures, etc. Ecosystems with more emphasis on how this management affects the quality of life of people and communities. In general, the population of today's world is more than 8 billion people, so they interact with their environment, and this dynamic process causes redistribution of population on the planet, which causes increased consumption, environmental destruction, and climate change.

All of these processes cause increased pressure on land and water, various ecosystems, and other natural resources that humans need. In most developing countries, the exploitation of natural resources leads to the destruction of the environment and the marginalization of vulnerable people. Afghanistan's natural resources are affected by indiscriminate use and the policy and monitoring situation that is the result of weak economy, poor and inconsistent land management and security threats. Approximately 70-80 percent of Afghans rely on natural resources through agriculture, livestock, and mining for their daily life. Afghanistan is facing many problems in managing natural resources, such as deforestation, desertification, loss of biodiversity and its habitats, pollution, natural disasters, soil salinization from irrigation, and the bad effects of wars. Geographically, all these problems are due to being surrounded by the land of Afghanistan. Natural resource management plays a major and comprehensive role in providing a strong economy, social development, and peace, good governance, and transparency. Regardless of the sustainable livelihood of the natural systems of families and communities, it has turned towards stronger vulnerability, which has also increased criminal records.

The current development of industry in Afghanistan such as: agriculture, livestock, mining, forestry, energy, and tourism requires those who work as observers, policy makers, and managers of Afghanistan's natural resources, ecosystems, and natural landscapes. The Department of Natural Resource Management promotes a holistic approach to natural resource management that focuses on sustainability while connecting all possible stakeholders throughout natural resource management planning. The Department of Natural Resources Management focuses on the technical understanding of ecology and resources, especially the high capacity of resources that sustain human development and life. The aim of the bachelor's degree in natural resources management is to produce many graduates who have the ability to manage Afghanistan's natural resources systematically. This includes managing multiple aspects of natural resource use (biophysical, socio-political, and economic), achieving production goals and other goals of direct consumers (food security, profitability, risk-taking), and also broader societal goals. (Poverty reduction, welfare of the future generation, environmental protection) In addition, it is important to understand global risks such as climate change that can affect the existence and expansion of natural resources.
