The Implications Of Deforestation In Ethiopia (part 1 of 2)

The forest covering parts of the world take account for the survival of both man and Earth. Even if you are located quite a distance away from these enormous holders of life, they can still protect you in one way or another.

For example, deforestation in Ethiopia could reach you in many possible means. The jungles truly work in ways that rather amazes the people, and among its best contributions to the world are: shelter from the greenhouse effect or global warming, arable lands for human utilization, pasture grounds for the animal kingdom, home to the indigenous, and a habitat for infinite types of species which are and may be purposeful in the human life.

Hence, the basics that man needs to live with can be found in these lands. However, with the ongoing rate of destruction it faces, the possibility of losing our last reserve of necessities could be abolished in two shakes. That is why the call for a green movement should seriously be taken and adapted to in life. If not, man would definitely be facing the worst wraths of nature.

Ethiopia is one of the few highly forested lands where the ecosystem is variably rich in resources. Among the many growths that made the nation popular is their plush source of coffee. Their plantation of this type of crop made them well-known all over the world. However, it is also due to the coffee economy that the lands of Ethiopia were subjected all the more to deforestation. Let us see how it affects them both economically and environmentally.

The Fall Of Ethiopian Land Conservation

Like many other drives to the salvation of our natural wonders, the fight to win Ethiopian lands from total annihilation has failed. Probably, the growing needs of the people were the primary reason for the failure of the project which resulted to irreparable damages.

Aside from this, here is a list of the dynamics which caused the breakdown of the hard work to conservation: lack of persistence in solving the problem, local community unawareness to the importance of forest preservation, the permanent settlement of immigrants who seek to have businesses over the exploding coffee trade, absence of participation among minority groups, ownership of the lands is mostly of the state, political issues which vary in support towards the green movement; and lastly, the unrelenting population growth which requires more forested lands to be cultivated for various uses.
