Population growth, changes in land-use patterns (e.g., agricultural intensification, urbanization), and climate change all, incur increasing.

The history of agriculture can be seen as a long process of intensification, as society sought to meet its ever-growing needs for food, feed and fiber by raising crop productivity [].Coupled with socio-economic development, population growth and growing global food demand, the pressure originated from the resource supply becomes greater, for example, increasingly fierce competition in land Cited by: 1.

In recent years, as a way to achieve higher agricultural output while reducing the negative impact of agricultural production on the environment, agricultural sustainable intensification has attracted worldwide attention. Under the framework of "connotation definition-measuring method-influencing factor-implementation path", this paper systematically sorts out the main research results in the Cited by: 1.

intensification of agricultural activities (Okafor, ). In view of the importance of land on food supply, the effect of population changes on agricultural development has attracted much attention recently. However, the impacts of population pressure may be different in different contexts.

INTRODUCTION. Humans have sought to understand the relationship between population dynamics and the environment since the earliest times (1, 2), but it was Thomas Malthus’ Essay on the Principle of Population in that is credited with launching the study of population and resources as a scientific topic of s’ famous hypothesis was that population numbers tend to grow.

Introduction. Population growth is a critical challenge facing sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) in the twenty-first century, as the region’s population currently stands at million people, and is projected to double by (Population Reference Bureau, ).The majority of people in SSA live in rural areas, which are experiencing rapid population growth and declining per capita farm by: Ecological Intensification includes building natural capital, precision agriculture and diversification.

Natural capital (the biophysical assets within the natural environment that deliver economic value through ecosystem services) [6] can be conserved and enhanced through a variety of approaches, including organic agriculture, water conservation and conservation agriculture.understand the relationship between population pressure, changes in land use and environmental degradation in the country.

Apart from the known effects of urbanization on global warming, acid rain and ozone depletion, it is also claimed that urbanization has serious impact on the availability of arable land and subsequently leading to.
