The concept of carrying capacity and land-use.
AbstractLand use is far from sustained in large parts of the Third World. Ecosystems and sociological systems are degraded as a result of resource depletion. Restoring the equilibrium between exploitation and the availability of resources is a matter of economic and ecological survival for both man and nature in these systems. The concept of carrying capacity lends itself to analysis of actual and potential land use which in turn makes it possible to identify the development potential and the limiting factors which may be alleviated by inputs in order to reduce degradation and raise productivity.
