IELTS Writing Task 2:

You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.
Write about the following topic:
Environmental problems are too big for countries or individual persons to address. In other words, we have reached the stage that environmental problems must be solved from an international perspective. To what extent do you agree or disagree ?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge and experience.
Write at least 250 words.

To improve the environment and beautify our surroundings is the theme of today’s world. Coordinating operations at the international level is highly desirable. I fully agree with the claim that international joint efforts are the best way to protect the environment.

Obviously, most of the environmental problems, ranging from deforestation to global warming, are not the results of any individual country. And it is true that a growing number of problems are no longer confined to a certain region or country. Massive oil spills can threaten international waters and marine animals; the depletion of the ozone layer will increase the amount of UV radiation that rcachcs the Earth’s surface and may even affect the global climate. Both cases, of course, go far beyond individual countries. It is in such cases that international cooperation is not only necessary, but also obligatory. International committees should be set up and international standards established, so that individual efforts can be coordinated and resources developed to their fullest potential.

Next to that, efforts of individual countries and individual persons should not be ignored. Manufacturers can conduct a pollution prevention inspection of facilities and organize employee work groups to brainstorm process improvements to reduce pollution. Communities can facilitate bicycle riding by providing safe bike lanes. At the same time, encourage park managers and individuals to use less pesticides on lawns.

Therefore, the most effective way is that we deal with environmental problems at both individual and international levels.
