2 Geography

  1. 1. Geography Increasing Price and Supply of Land and its effectiveness
  2. 2. Responses to Rising Demand for Land <ul><li>Rising demand for limited land results in an increased competition between different groups of people . </li></ul><ul><li>If a piece of land is used in one way, it may not be possible to use it for another purpose. Opportunity cost is the cost of not being able to use the same piece of land for the next best use. </li></ul><ul><li>There are three responses to the rising demand for land – increasing the price of land, increasing the supply of land and conserving land. </li></ul>
  3. 3. 1. Increasing the price of land <ul><li>The land area available for use in a country or city is limited. </li></ul><ul><li>Population increase causes rise of land price. </li></ul><ul><li>When demand for land increases and the available land area cannot meet with the increase in demand, the price of the land may increase. As some users may be willing to pay a higher price for the available land, this would push up the price of the land. </li></ul><ul><li>Price mechanism is the way in which prices for goods and services are set based on their demand and supply. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>The land in a city area is usually very expensive because there is a high demand for the limited supply of land. </li></ul><ul><li>The increase in price of land in some urban areas is due to the massive increase in population, scarcity of developed land and migration of people from rural to urban areas. </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing the price of land is a way to solve the rising demand for land as it discourages some people from using the land, thus reducing the demand. </li></ul>1. Increasing the price of land
  5. 5. 2. Increasing the supply of land <ul><li>There are 3 ways to increase the supply of land or land area available for use - land clearance, land reclamation and maximising the use of existing. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Land clearance <ul><li>One way to meet the increase in demand for land for various land uses is to increase the amount of land available for development. The fastest and easiest way to do this is by land clearance. </li></ul><ul><li>Land clearance is a process whereby empty plots of land are created for various landuses. This may be carried out by demolishing old buildings or by clearing forests, also known as deforestation . </li></ul>
  7. 7. Effectiveness of land clearance <ul><li>Positive Impacts </li></ul><ul><li>When a piece of land is cleared, it can be developed for other uses. E.g. When old buildings are demolished or forests are cleared, land is freed up to build new buildings and other facilities. </li></ul><ul><li>Land cleared for housings. </li></ul><ul><li>Agricultural profit is primary motivator for land clearance. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Negative Impacts </li></ul><ul><li>Land clearance can cause many plants and animals to die or become endangered. E.g. When deforestation takes places, the habitats of many plants and animals will be destroyed. As a result, many plants and animals might die or even become extinct, causing negative consequences in the entire food chain. </li></ul><ul><li>It exposes soil to erosive forces. </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing stream temperature. </li></ul><ul><li>Haze will occur when trees are burnt down. </li></ul>
