A STUDY ON THE DEFORESTATION AND FOREST DEGRADATION ON THE POPULATION
Deforestation as well as forest degradation (D&D) in the tropics therefore remained relevant and pose serious threats to the forests with livelihoods of all those who rely on forests also with forest resources. Rural households are also interested as essential representatives of D&D in science literature including policy papers. There is little detail, however, as to why small farmers abuse forests and also what main drivers they are. We used behavioral research methods to capture environmental influences, attitudinal factors, and repetitive behaviors that form small - scale farmers' decisions. Deforestation has arisen as being one of main issues of the international population as it is due to substantial environmental impacts. Rural population development is not consistent with forest degradation, reflecting the significance of urban and foreign demands among agricultural products as causes of deforestation. The trend in the migration of individuals to cities in the tropics seems probably, counter-intuitively, over to be correlated with greater demand to clear rainforests. We thus indicate that strategies aimed at mitigating deforestation by local rural communities would not solve the key reason of deforestation throughout the future. Instead, attempts need to be made to minimize deforestation for commercial, export-oriented crop output, alongside efforts to raise yields throughout non-forested lands to meet the requirement of agricultural goods.
