How have human activities caused desertification? Explain


#2

The human activities like deforestation, over-cultivation, unrestricted grazing, poor irrigation practices, result in arid patches of land (deforestation).
When these large barren patches extend and remain unattended for long, a desert is created. Because the formation of fertile top layer of soil takes millions of years, desertification easily takes over.
