Passage

Read the paragraph given below and answer questions below:

In rural areas of low income countries, rapid population growths has often resulted in added pressure on agricultural land, resulting in land fragmentation and the reduction of yields. Such a process is at the root of a further cycle of environmental damage as the people who lack adequate land in one region migrate to ever more environmentally fragile area in search of better chances of subsistence. Although the rural population of developing countries is expected to increase more slowly in the future than it did over past 40 years, several regions already have very high population densities relative to available agricultural land. Consequently, even low levels of population growth are likely to result in added pressure on the rural environment. In those region, the continued destruction of natural resources as a result of attempts to extend the agricultural frontier is very likely to continue or to accelerate in the future.

When considering responses to environmental problems, it is necessary to recognize that social- institutional factors are as important as the technologies ones. Traditional societies developed communal rules for managing scares resources. Population growths has the potential to destabilize such communal arrangements, since rules that functioned adequately at a low population density may lead to over exploitation and pollution at a higher density.
