• Climate change, human activities, and industrialization have affected biodiversity.
  • Climate change has resulted in scarcity that has affected the survival of species as their habitats are being destroyed.
  • Many businesses are currently centered upon profitability goals and prefer to ignore the issue of biodiversity loss.
  • Half of the topsoil of the planet has been lost in the last 150 years and there is now a lack of nutrient quality in arable land to grow crops.
  • Millions of hectares of arable land remain arid and have turned into deserts.
  • Prime farmland is being converted into housing and industrial development.
  • Poor soil conservation measures has driven thousands of people from their homes and leading to unforeseen extinction of flora and fauna.

  • Climate change and human activity such as deforestation and industrialization.
  • Oceanic dumping and coastal pollution.
  • Overexploitation through activities such as hunting, fishing, gaming, poaching and illegal activities.
  • Agricultural land overuse, deforestation, excessive use of chemicals and pesticides or agrochemicals.
  • Climate change and glob
  • Land degradation will impact agricultural productivity where crop yields increase slowly relative to food demands , leading to global food security issues.
  • Soil which is more exposed to wind and water erosion can make it more unstable physically, chemically and biologically and become uninhabitable.
  • Conversion of farmlands into factories and modern homes can dispossess indigenous people of their lands resulting in a loss of the nation’s history and identity.
  • Poor soil conservation can lead to desertification of land which could result in biodiversity loss and a terrestrial ecosystem imbalance.
  • al warming resulting in hotter summers and lower rainfall.
  • A drive towards rapid urbanization to escalate economic growth.
  • Financial incapacity, a lack of resource and lack of education in soil conservation measures.

  • Different sectors such as forestry, farming and fishing are likely to suffer business risks as a result of biodiversity loss.
  • The lack of protection measures in maintaining global biodiversity could result in an increased number of disease-carrying species and more mutations and infectious disease transmissions.
  • Biodiversity loss will be an underlying factor that could affect future food security and pricing, due to dwindling livestock populations, extinction and disease.
  • Exercise good land husbandry, enact firm policies and guidelines on the use of arable land and impose penalties for misuse.
  • Introduce necessary infrastructure to prevent aridity and to improve and prolong land sustainability.
  • Protect land, resource rights and marginalization of indigenous people by imposing title deeds.
  • Rehabilitate and restore degraded lands through technology and introduce effective soil conservation measures.

  • Protect and preserve biodiversity by setting up habitats that are conducive to certain species.
  • Help clean-up and protect environments where wild species live and keep these environments clean.
  • Enforce stricter laws on hunting, poaching and over-consumption.
