ENVIRONMENTAL 
DEGRADATION 
By 
Neha Patil 
Muthu Gomathy V
MOTHER NATURE 
The natural environment, 
with all its ecosystem 
services, comprises the entire 
basis for life on the planet. Its 
value is therefore impossible 
to quantify or even model.
What Is Environmental Degradation? 
Environmental degradation is a result of socio-economical, 
technological and institutional activities. Degradation occurs 
when Earth's natural resources are depleted. These 
resources which are affected include: 
Water 
Air 
Soil 
The degradation also impacts our: 
Wildlife 
Plants 
Animals 
Micro-organisms
How Environmental Degradation Occurs: 
Environmental changes are based on 
many factors including: 
Urbanization 
The Population Explosion 
Intensification of agriculture 
Increase in energy use 
Increase in transportation
..continued 
High quantity of Exhaust gases 
Secondary Pollutants 
 High number of industries such as mining 
 Chemical effluents 
Unplanned Land-use policies
The effects of the major environmental 
problems on both health and productivity 
are: 
a. Water pollution and water scarcity 
b. Air pollution 
c. Solid and hazardous wastes 
d. Soil degradation 
e. Deforestation 
f. Loss of biodiversity 
g. Atmospheric changes
Some Solutions to Environmental 
Degradation 
•afforestation 
•mixed crops or crop rotation 
•drip irrigation 
•stocking your land 
•Purchase recycled products 
•Conserve water 
•Conserve energy 
•Be an advocate to save our planet!
Innovative Ideas………… 
• Opt for sustainable and renewable way of living- GO GREEN 
• 3 R’s for green lifestyle 
• REDUCING 
• REUSING 
• RECYCLING
Ineffective international 
policies 
Ineffective interational policies leave the 
future of the environment in a critical state 
with carbon dioxide level rising out of control. It 
is predicted that the Earth’s temperature will 
increase by “11-degrees Fahrenheit by the end 
of the century” (ABC Science, 2010).
Lets Go Green……………… 
Thank You
