Environmental degradation


This is the reduction of the environment’s ability to meet social and ecological goals and demands.

Environmental degradation can change the frequency and intensity of natural disasters, making communities more vulnerable. Land abuse, soil erosion and loss, desertification, wildland fires, loss of biodiversity, deforestation, mangrove destruction, land, water, and air pollution, climate change, sea-level rise, and ozone depletion are all examples of human-induced degradation.
