Relocated (lots of people relocated to safer areas, with basic amenities supplied) - some people resist as they’re too far from their jobs, or bc they prefer being with their community
Authorities (authorities can improve housing by providing toilets, sewage systems and schools) - this isn’t possible in overcrowded areas.

A

> Decomposing organic matter benefits crops as they gain nutrients (no effectiveness)
Trees And Crops planted together to reduce soil erosion through protection by canopy and support by roots.
—ineffective as trees take a long time to grow
Selective logging - trees only felled when at a certain height
—effective as young trees guaranteed a longer lifespan, thus preventing soil erosion, however it’s time consuming so logging companies feel it’s not cost effective
Monitoring - satellites used to detect illegal activity
—ineffective as they’re expensive so not viable in poorer countries
+++
Way of life - RLD leads to destruction of the way of life of indigenous people, eg the Yanomami
Carbon sink - loss of carbon sink can contribute to climate change
Nutrient cycle - RLD has an adverse affect on the nutrient cycle as the lack of leaf litter reduces soil fertility
Surface run off//silting - Increased surface run off, due to less trees, increases soil erosion and causes silting of rivers
Biodiversity reduced and some species may go extinct
