Desertification

Desertification is a type of land degradation in which relatively dry land becomes more and more arid. Africa is experiencing this problem because of mismanagement of natural resources. It is occurring in the region of Africa known as the Sahel, which is the semi-arid region between the Sahara Desert and the wetter regions of Equatorial Africa.

Overpopulation

Overpopulation is the function of the numbers of individual compared to the relevant resources. This is happening because of a sharp decline in infant and child mortality rates coupled with a high fertility rate. It is happening mostly in the Sub-Sahara region of Africa.

Disease

The most dangerous disease in Africa right now is Ebola. It was found in Guinea and Liberia.

How lack of education relates to the problems:

The main reason the lack of education is related is because the people don't understand the consequences of the actions they are doing and it is leading to the problems happening. Many people from the countries around that are educated and can serve as teachers probably don't want to go because of how bad it has gotten especially with the civil wars taking place. Since most people are armed and dangerous in Africa, it makes most people afraid to teach and help the uneducated become educated.
