As lands degrade, those who depend on the lands become poorer. Farmers have to leave their lands as it is no longer fertile or provides for them anymore. To prevent land degradation, it has to be treated like it matters. It mostly occurs due to destructive behaviour towards trees and lands such as deforestation. By teaching people to value trees and their land, tree cover and the fertility of the soil can be restored. When the environment thrives, people thrive!
