Land

The natural and built environment is strongly affected by land management plans. In Lebanon, current land management practices are not sustainable as they continue to erode the country’s natural resource base (soil, water, green cover, and landscapes). Whereas traditional practices such as terracing, controlled grazing and forest management helped protect the lands, modern practices (many of which emerged during the civil war) have significantly altered the natural and social make-up of our lands including our perception of natural resources. Population growth, the continued loss of arable land and biodiversity, concerns about food security and the rising costs of infrastructure due to population growth and urban sprawl are major factors impacting land resources, our natural environment, as well as social behaviors.
