Increasing anthropogenic requirements beyond the needs and economical activities are increasing pressure on land resources, creating competition and conflicts, resulting in suboptimal use of resources.
By examining all uses of land in an integrated manner, it makes possible to minimize conflicts, make the most efficient trade-offs, and link social & economic development with environmental protection and enhancement, thus helping to achieve the objectives of sustainable development (UNCCD, 2015).
Land degradation due to anthropogenic activities such as Deforestation, Mining, Cattle Grazing, Urbanization, Agriculture, etc., leads to an increase in desertification, land degradation, and drought.
As per SDG 15 which aims at protecting, restoring, and promoting sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably managing forests, combating desertification, halting and reversing land degradation, and halting biodiversity loss, it is crucial to monitor activities leading to land degradation to plan for adequate measure for planning strategies that ensures land restoration and natural resource management.
This Analysis shows the vast expanses of land being left bare, degraded, and subjected to accelerated erosion and the threat of desertification as a result of mining activities and deforestation in Drebkau, Germany.
