Environmental geography is the branch of geography that describes the
spatial aspects of interactions between humans and the natural world. It

Environmental geography has emerged as a bridge between human and

approach was needed to understand the changing and dynamic relationship.
Examples of areas of research in environmental geography include
emergency management, environmental management, sustainability, and
