Question and answer
Which ways environmenta problems impact in south africa or globally
Water is perhaps South Africa's most critical resource - one of low abundance and growing needs. [ Tie that with problems of increased land use and population growth and you have several big reasons for concern. Lack of water South Africa's freshwater supply is almost stretched to its limit. Less than 10% of South Africa’s rainfall is available as surface water, one of the lowest conversion ratios in the world. The country’s groundwater resources are equally limited. Destruction of natural habitats The land of the "fine-leaved plants", the South African Fynbos, is one of the world’s most
impressive botanical kingdoms - a mind-boggling variety of plants that is richer than any other comparable sized area in Africa. An estimated 8,500 species of vascular plants, of which 70% are endemic (they are found nowhere else in the world), are reported here. Overfishing Along the West Coast of South Africa, there is persistent overharvesting of many commercially valuable species and products such as pilchard, anchovy and rock lobster. Further at sea, some fish stocks have been over-harvested, and several species face local extinction. ]
