  Natural resource - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Natural resources must be developed and nature will only find her destiny once capital and technology have been brought into play.
A resource is now defined scientifically as a form of energy or matter that is essential for the functioning of organisms, populations and ecosystems.
In the particular case of humans, a natural resource is any form of energy or matter essential for the fulfilment of physiological, socioeconomic and cultural needs, both at the individual level and that of the community.
