Human interaction and the changing land use

As evolution would have it, as the early hunter-gatherers settled down, their relationship with land changed in a major way. The increase in agriculture & cultivation of crops, social and technological changes revolutionized the structure of human society and their way of living. The dense human settlements paved the way for the formation of early towns and cities. The increasing human interventions  in nature and land resources and its exploitation have transformed the water, land, and local ecologies  and have a major impact on availability of resources.

The earth has transitioned from Neolithic age to Holocene and now has firmly placed itself into Anthropocene  age.

The expanding cities reflect the changing land use. The land use is transforming  from agriculture and forests into residential and commercial buildings, industry, and associated infrastructure. The increasing urbanization has implications for food,  poverty, health, jobs and access to services.  The future encompasses a warmer world. It is important to brace ourselves and our resources to adapt to changing environment.
