Environmental science focuses on the interaction between nature, the environment and human beings, and is thus central to achieving sustainable development. In particular, environmental science focuses on studying environmental problems, their causes, processes, effects and possible measures and solutions. It is interdisciplinary and primarily founded in the natural sciences and engineering, with clear links to other subjects such as political science, law, economics, and behavioral sciences.
