Why Is It Necessary To Promote Life On Land?

Written by

Plant life thriving and thriving on agricultural land is the basic foundation for sustainable life on the planet. The lives of humans and all living things depend on the well-being of the Earth and the preservation of our oceans. So plants are responsible for our daily diet and 80% of people, while forests cover 30% of the Earth’s surface. They provide vital habitat for millions of species and wildlife, while providing critical resources such as clean air and water, all of which are essential to our climate. From the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat, forests are what sustain us.

More than 1.6 billion lives depend on forests for their livelihoods, and nearly 75 percent of the world’s poor are affected by land degradation. Although humans are a major part of the ecosystem, they have also caused serious damage to the earth and climate through deforestation, loss of natural habitats, land degradation and pollution. To protect and restore all these lands for future generations, we need to promote the sustainable use of our ecosystems and preserve biodiversity.

How farmers promote life on land

The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) created the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) to protect, restore and promote the sustainable and environmentally sound use of terrestrial ecosystems. Reports indicate that about 80% of our agricultural land has fallen victim to degradation.

The problem of degradation in Africa is more acute than in any other continent. This is because livelihoods in regions of Africa depend heavily on natural resources such as forests and agricultural products. As the human population grows, farmland, forests, and woodlands are increasingly being cleared.

Many other smaller projects, such as the Save Our Environment Foundation and Climate Smart Agriculture, have been initiated to promote sustainable land management practices, such as techniques to improve soil fertility. These techniques include composting, mulching, crop residue management, and shifting cultivation. Other interventions also include crop rotation, manure management, organic fertilizers and household composting.

Land advertising online

Two young men from Scotland recently sold their farm through their Instagram, which has more than 3,000 followers. Caratina McCarter, 25, opened up about her life and her family’s 100-acre farm in Nairn, near Inverness. They shared their “young farmer issues” and insights into their home and stock.

They acknowledge the high soil conservation and non-economic profit, but they also emphasize that their story and weekly farm updates have gained attention and people are now starting to discuss the importance of soil protection and conservation.

Conservation helps protect the environment from harmful human activities with increasing demand for exploitable resources, while transforming the land through responsible use of natural resources. While conserving such open spaces can provide habitats for native plants and animals, it can also help improve ecosystem services and protect unique geological features.
