Description:
Overgrazing is the largest threat to the environment since cattle, which outnumber people in Namibia, have surpassed the carrying capacity of the land. Current evidence of desertification includes declining ground water levels, soil erosion, reduced soil fertility, increased salt content in soils, and loss of woody vegetation. The increase in cattle stocks is shown in this figure.
