Hi, I'm YH from Group 5! 

I'd add the further criterion of affordability to your set of metrics, given the extreme prevalence of "pollution of poverty" in LEDCs where destitution compels these marginalised groups to pursue unsustainable methods of production (i.e. slash-and-burn) instead. 

These are inherently detrimental and are unfortunately unavoidable unless opportunities present themselves either as alternative forms of unemployment or as a more affordable means of production that does not jeopardise the livelihoods of those concerned - and this is what governments should consequently tackle within these contextual paradigms.
