Deforestation, clearance, clearcutting or clearing is the removal of a forest or stand of trees from land which is then converted to a non-forest use. Deforestation can involve conversion of forest land to farms, ranches, or urban use. The most concentrated deforestation occurs in tropical rainforests. About 31% of Earth's land surface is covered by forests. → Human factors such as population density, technological capability and culture and traditions etc. • Land use data, however, is available only for 93 per cent of the total geographical area because the land use reporting for most of the north-east states except Assam has not been done fully.

    Advances in Responsible Land Administration is an interesting and well-elaborated book explaining new methods that challenge conventional forms of land administration. The book is particularly timely and valuable in unfolding the innovative approaches to designing land .

They are also associated with arid conditions, areas prone. Several technological advances are helping to improve and transform drylands research and management. Inexpensive, open-source, and/or repurposed hardware and software Given increasing budget constraints, the need for diversified data streams with high sampling frequencies in dry-lands requires creative thinking and innovative approaches.

Modern technological energy solutions and the deployment of renewable energies coupled with sustainable land-use management practices, such as agroforestry, can significantly mitigate land degradation and decrease vulnerability of energy systems while supporting universal access to clean, affordable, and secure energy.

• Also not just ECONOMIC development • It has to be a holistic approach. • Social aspects, development and environment have a strong relation.

Boundaries Redefined Technological changes have significant consequences for industries: • Technological change is a potent force in the reconfiguring of industry boundaries, it may broaden or narrow generally excepted industry boundaries • As a consequence of its impact on whole industries, technological change can have a significant.

We have deep reserves of powerful technologies—for food production, water management in dry lands, disease control, and infrastructure—that can be deployed rapidly and at modest cost to break.

Book Description In dealing with scarce land, planners often need to interact with, and sometimes confront, property right-holders to address complex property rights situations.

To reinforce their position in situations of rivalrous land uses, planners can strategically use and combine different policy instruments in addition to standard land. Due to technological innovation, it has given rise to the development of hybrid vehicles that runs on electricity.

Such machines are highly efficient and don’t emit poisonous gases to the entire environment. Electricity is needed to power computers to perform online work.

It was an urgent call by the General Assembly of the United Nations: to propose long-term environmental strategies for achieving sustainable development by the year and beyond.This book reveals a dynamic image of African rural society in which manufacturing patterns change shortly in response to market options.

These modifications are pushed largely by local farmers' initiatives, and are typically associated to an increase in market-based entry to land that is evident beneath every customary and private land tenure.
