LAND POLLUTION
What is Land Pollution?
-Land pollution may be understood as the deterioration of the earth’s land surfaces, often directly or indirectly as a result of man’s activities.

-the deposition of solid or liquid waste materials on land or underground in a manner that can contaminate the soil and groundwater, threaten public health, and cause unsightly conditions and nuisances.

REDUCE THE USE OF PESTICIDES AND FERTILIZERS IN AGRICULTURAL ACTIVITIES
-Desertification is when effects of human development or other actions convert a piece of fertile land into desert-land or dry-land. Land once converted to desert-land can never be reclaimed by any amount of corrective measures.

DESERTIFICATION
-Deforestation is the permanent destruction of indigenous forests and woodlands. The term does not include the removal of industrial forests such as plantations of gums or pines. Deforestation has resulted in the reduction of indigenous forests to four-fifths of their pre-agricultural area.


DEFORESTRATION
-When the top-most 'soil' layer of land is destroyed or polluted. Soil pollution is again another cause of land pollution that affects not only the land, but also a lot of other things such as forest cover of a region, productivity of land in terms of agriculture, grazing etc. Also caused by the use of fertilizers.
SOIL POLLUTION
-When a piece of land is converted from its indigenous form to a form used for either agriculture or infrastructure. Land conversion is especially a growing problem that we possibly do not have a good solution for.
LAND CONVERSION
-refers to a process in which an increasing proportion of an entire population lives in cities and the suburbs of cities. Historically, it has been closely connected with industrialization. When more and more inanimate sources of energy were used to enhance human productivity (industrialization),
URBANIZATION
-Improper waste disposal has many negative side effects for the environment. Air, soil and water contamination are the main two concerns. Dumping garbage has an effect on animal population as well, especially algae and other sea life.
IMPROPER WASTE DISPOSAL
-Land pollutions leads to loss in the forest cover of Earth. This is in turn going to affect the amount of rain. Less rain mean lesser vegetation. The effect of all different kinds of pollution will eventually lead to problems like acid rains, greenhouse effect, global warming.

EFFECTS ON CLIMATE
-Because of deforestration or other pollutions cause by humans, the habitats of the animals are being destroyed because of different human activities such as mining. and because of this it affects the life of the animals in the wild.
EFFECTS ON WILDLIFE
-Species are pushed towards endangerment and extinction primarily by two processes. Habitat fragmentation is the fragmentation of the natural habitat of an organism; cause primarily by urban sprawl. Habitat destruction, on the other hand, is when land clearing adversely affects animals special such that their natural habitat is lost. Both the actions can cause some species to go extinct and others to become invasive.

EXTINCTION OF SPECIES
-Process in which certain non-biodegradable substances go on accumulating in the food-chain. The most common example is of methyl mercury in fish and mercury in eagles. Not only does bio magnification put the particular species at risk, it puts all the species above and below it at risk, and ultimately affects the food pyramid.

BIO MAGNIFICATION
-Species extinction and bio magnification is going to overthrow the balance of nature very significantly. The main reason for this is disturbance created in the food chain. To give you a very simple example - on account of bio magnification of mercury in eagles, they might go extinct in the subsequent years. However, we know eagles prey on snakes. Less (or no) eagles will then result in more number of snakes!
EFFECTS ON BIODIVERSITY
SOLUTIONS
-Proper waste management is the most important thing to do for the prevention of land pollution. Several steps should be taken to ensure that the waste gets disposed in the most harmless way, i.e. produces less or no toxins.

PROPER WASTE DISPOSAL
-People should buy and use products that have been recycled. For instance, plastic bags should be given up; instead, jute bags should be used. Reusing old items is another good way to reduce the stress on various resources. Clothes, paper, glass, everything should be recycled and reused, as far as possible.

REUSE, REDUCE AND RECYCLE
-People should buy biodegradable products. Go organic
-that's the mantra for avoiding land pollution. Organic farming, lessening the use of pesticides, buying organic fruits and vegetables and other products, will keep land pollution in check.
PROMOTE BIODEGRADABLE PRODUCTS
-Initiative should be taken to grow more trees. Researches show that trees can actually fertilize the soil. This means that by growing trees, soil will become fertile, agriculture will get boosted and land pollution will greatly reduce.

PLANT MORE TREES
-There should be minimal wastage. There should be no littering. Oil and petrol should be used judiciously. So should all the other products and resources made from glass, plastic, metal and paper.

CITATIONS
-http://www.conserve-energy-future.com/causes-effects-solutions-of-land-pollution.php

-ppt(Mr. hammad.shariq.ahmed)

- it is an electronic jeep (e-jeep) that uses electricity instead of diesel and gas. It also reduces air pollution because it not emmits to much smoke because it is a environment friendly jeep.
IKOT LASALLE
-DLSU-D encourages the students to segregates their trashes in the 3 different trash bins to able to help them to segregate the wastes easily.
SEGREGATION OF DIFFERENT TRASHES
- DLSUD planted more than 1 million seedlings in the past two years. their project, The Green for LIFE: One Million Trees and Beyond Project serves to provide a venue for more pro-active responses to environmental issues through tree-planting activities and reforestation programs that promote the propagation and caring for indigenous species.
PLANTING TREES
- DLSUD uses bikes as an alternative transportation inside the campus.
