    The loss of terrestrial ecosystems – caused by human activities and climate change –has affected countless lives of all species. According to the United Nations Development Programme, “millions of acres of forests are being lost every year while desertification has led to the loss of billions of acres of drylands. 8 percent of all known animals are extinct and 22 percent are at risk of extinction.”
    Delhi High court (6 March 2017) said had trees in the capital been voters, they would not be felled at an alarmin rate. the court has now suggested a controller and auditor general (CAG) audit into the amount of timber generated by encroachers and even public authorities.

    Lets see what this audit come up. I think we are the reason behind it.
    Suggest some idea to deteriorate the risk, and improve health.

    Adherence to the solution is the key for the success. This target cannot be achieved. Delhi is capital and on priority to combat pollution.
    very nice concern.

    Delhi being the capital of our big developing nation, has some how the burden of being up to the level of other cities of the developed world, in regards to living standards. Thus unless we try and stop for a while and plan out ways of sustainable means, without compromising the nature, the task in hand is difficult to achieve. The common man has to be the leader of the movement because its his demands of luxury, which is responsible to an extent for the uncontrolled and unsustainable growth.

    Studies have proposed that 66% of Earth’s land – 44% as intact natural ecosystems and 22% as agro-ecological buffers – must remain intact to sustain the biosphere.Various natural calamities all over the world are indicative that these boundaries have been surpassed.Rapid urbanization is one of the reasons responsible for clearing of lands for housing needs.If equal opportunities in terms of job,education are created in rural areas, this will to some extent help in stemming influx into the cities.

    With increasing industrial and agricultural advancement, more and more forests are undergoing conversion for land use. As stated by the United Nations, the Life on Land goal is to “protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.” SDG 15 was created to bring attention to the negative side effects from agricultural and industrial development. This can only be done by creating awareness among people about afforestation. This can be started right from schools teaching students about forests. Forests cover roughly one-third of Earth’s land mass, and with that amount of coverage, the world depends on their functions. These functions include mitigating climate change, reducing risks of floods, droughts, and landslides, and contributing to the balance of oxygen, carbon dioxide, and humidity in the air. Beyond its environmental functions, forests also provide jobs, shelter, and security for many communities so the fact that they’re diminishing is life-threatening. This should be included in school curriculum and plantation drives must be held regularly by schools at different places. To have better life on land we need to conserve our other resources as well.
