Passage

Read the paragraph given below carefully and answer the questions.

Rural to urban migration is prominent in migration–environment linkages in Africa. In the United Republic of Tanzania, the spread of cash crops especially (coffee and cotton) was stimulate by government policy and led to substantial rural – rural migration to the Using plains, depleting their vegetation. The human population of plains rose fivefold between 1948 and 1988. However, the ecological deterioration was also partly due to insecure land tenure and the absence of social institution for regulating resources access and use. In Nigeria, the Keytar of the Jos Plateau, responding to expanding market opportunities rather than population pressure, migrated from the fertile Benue plains and changed from being shifting cultivators in temporarily cleared areas of forest to being permanent and intensive tillers of family farms in areas cleared of forest.
