Understanding of the Concept of Environmental Degradation
One of the most significant tests currently facing humanity is environmental degradation, including desertification, deforestation, climate change, and pollution. Environmental degradation is a serious concern since it contributes to resource scarcity and increases societies’ vulnerability to adverse climate changes. Consequently, it is a major factor fueling human-wildlife conflict and tensions in various communities. According to Choudhary et al. (2015), environmental degradation is the undesirable disturbance to the environment leading to the decline of environmental resources such as soil, air, and water, the ruining of ecosystems, and the extinction of wildlife.
