  5. 5. Development is dependent on a complex combination of factors: <br /> natural, physical, and human resources<br />
  6. 6. Let us examine how much we have in order to substantiate our claim that the Philippine is on the road to progress<br />
  7. 7. The Philippine is a rich country. It is well-endowed with natural resources which are the products and features of the Earth that support life and satisfy people’s needs<br /> forest and non-forest land areas, water resources and mineral deposits<br />
  8. 8. The country has a big population which can be considered its wealth too. <br /> the labor force is literate, skilled, and healthy<br />
  9. 9. Look around you and you will see wider roads, flyovers, long bridges, skyways, skyscrapers, heavy equipment and machinery<br />physical resources<br />
  10. 10. FOREST RESOURCES<br /> This natural wealth plays an important part in the economy of the Philippines. The national government earns considerable income from forest operations, thus, the need to control forest exploitation.<br /> How does rapid population growth affect forest resources?<br />
  11. 11. Problem of Our Forest Resources<br /> 1. Rapid denudation of Philippine forest.<br /> 2. The destruction of watershed areas.<br /> 3. The upland population has increased tremendously<br />

  15. 15. Questions to consider<br /> 1. Do we have a quality of population?<br /> 2. Do we have a healthy population<br /> 3. Do we have a literate population?<br /> 4. Do we have a population or a labor force in particular, that possesses the qualifications that will enable it to compete in a global economy?<br /> 3. Do we invest enough on human capital?<br />
  16. 16. What is the economic value of the government’s investment in health and education program?<br />
  17. 17. PHYSICAL RESOURCES<br /> Physical resources are man-made structures, machines, and equipment which are intended to improve the productive capacity of the economy.<br /> How does rapid population growth affect forest resources?<br />
