Ключевые слова:Sustainable development, Climate change, Deforestation, Pollution, Aral Sea crisis, Reforestation, Environmental Kuznets Curve, Panel data models, Environmental policies, United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
This paper offers an all-encompassing examination of the numerous challenges Earth faces, such as climate change, deforestation, pollution, and regional ecological catastrophes like the Aral Sea crisis in Central Asia. It stresses the importance of individuals, communities, and organizations adopting sustainable practices and aligning with global strategies, like the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to preserve the planet for future generations. The paper also underscores the significance of reforestation initiatives and the role of econometric models, such as the Environmental Kuznets Curve and panel data models, in evaluating environmental policies and guiding sustainable development. Statistical data, case studies, and innovative solutions are incorporated to demonstrate the urgency of addressing these challenges and to provide evidence-based strategies for a sustainable future.
