Abstract

At present we are living in an increasingly globalized world. The scientific impact of the planetary boundary framework is based on biological, physical and chemical structures, and also is an important item for the sustainability. During the last five decades, global population, food production, and energy consumption have increased remarkably. For the growing population, sustainable economic development and standard of living, including living space, food, fuel, and other materials by sustaining ecosystem services and biodiversity are necessary. This article tries to identify the sustainable development policy on the basis of planetary boundaries. This planet has limited natural resources but human beings are using these in unplanned and competitive ways. Since 2008 scientists have been identified nine planetary boundary processes. These provide a safe space for innovation, growth and development in the detection of human prosperity. Out of these nine boundaries four have already been passed due to human activities and two boundaries still need to be determined. If these nine boundaries passed due to unconsciousness and unplanned activities of humankind, then the living organisms of the earth will face threat for the survival. The paper analyzes sufficient theoretical analysis to make it interesting to the readers. The study stresses on sustainable development policy for the welfare of humanities. The results of the study are presented by chemical reactions and sufficient numerical scientific data. An attempt has been taken here to create consciousness among the nations of the world about the effects of the crossing of the planetary boundaries.
