With the world growing at a pace hard to match, the increasing need for space is turning out to be an area of concern. Deforestation, in simple terms, means the felling and clearing of forest cover or tree plantations to accommodate agricultural, industrial or urban use.
Climate change, land degradation and land use are linked in a complex web of causality. One important impact of climate change on land degradation is that increasing global temperatures intensify the hydrological cycle, resulting in more intense rainfall, which is an important driver of soil erosion. This means that sustainable land management SLM becomes even more important with climate change.

Deforestation and forest degradation are the biggest threats to forests worldwide. Deforestation occurs when forests are converted to non-forest uses, such as agriculture and road construction. Forest degradation occurs when forest ecosystems lose their capacity to provide important goods and services to people and nature. Over half of the tropical forests worldwide have been destroyed since the s, and every second, more than one hectare of tropical forests is destroyed or drastically degraded. This intense and devastating pressure on forests is not limited to the tropics — an estimated 3. Deforestation in Myanmar. The degradation and loss of forests threaten the survival of many species, and reduce the ability of forests to provide essential services such as clean air and water, healthy soils for agriculture, and climate regulation.
Deforestation , clearance , clearcutting , or clearing is the removal of a forest or stand of trees from land that is then converted to non-forest use. The most concentrated deforestation occurs in tropical rainforests. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations defines deforestation as the conversion of forest to other land uses regardless of whether it is human-induced. Net change, therefore, can be positive or negative, depending on whether gains exceed losses, or vice versa. For instance, FAO estimate that the global forest carbon stock has decreased 0. In North America, the forest carbon stock increased from
This is the old United Nations University website. Deforestation and desertification in developing countries. This paper takes a fresh look at two of the major environmental hazards affecting the planet, namely deforestation and desertification, in terms of the nature and magnitude of the problem as faced by the developing world, and their causes and effects. The Indian scenario and the various measures that have been adopted so far to combat the problem are reviewed. The role of forestry in controlling desertification and strategies for sound economic development while conserving the global environment are also discussed.

Один раз Грег Хейл уже разрушил планы АНБ. Что мешает ему сделать это еще. Но Танкадо… - размышляла .
Рана была небольшой, скорее похожей на глубокую царапину. Он заправил рубашку в брюки и оглянулся. Позади уже закрывались двери. Беккер понял, что, если его преследователь находится внутри, он в западне.
