Economic activities such as agriculture, forestry, transport, manufacturing and housing use land and alter its natural state and functions. These activities, in general, lower the quality of land, which is difficult and time-consuming to restore. Land use has impacts on climate change, biodiversity loss and the degradation and pollution of water, soils and air.
