Soil Erosion in Eritrea
The Soil Problem
Many places in Africa, especially Eritrea, has had to deal with soil erosion for many years. Human and animal involvement has been the cause of this problem, and activities such as foraging, grazing, and subsistence agriculture have leached the soil, eroding away its fertility Also, things such as slash-and-burn agriculture (when peasants keep on clearing land) have been the cause of more problems like deforestation and desertification (this is the effect of human and animal involvement).
