Does population growth inevitably lead to land degradation?

Does population growth inevitably lead to land degradation?

Agriculture and environmental challenges: proceedings of the Thirteenth Agricultural Sector Symposium: 45-58

This paper discusses the issue of whether population growth inevitably leads to land degradation drawing on the results of two studies undertaken in sub-Saharan Africa in the mid-1980s, one drawing on data from Ethiopia, and the second in Kenya. The paper argues that land degradation does not necessarily result from population growth, and that concern should focus on the steps that can be taken to ensure that this is the case.
