According to my opinion, it is vital to protect outskirts by avoiding building homes there. If rural areas will be utilized for building homes, it would greatly affect the economy as agriculture is being done there. Moreover, it will also affect the atmosphere, as it will increase population in the villages.
Firstly, the economy will greatly be affected, if rural areas are utilized for building homes, as people will have to destroy farmland in order to construct houses. Farming is the backbone of economy. Thus, destroying farmland will affect the economy in a negative way. For instance, Pakistan’s economy largely depends on farming, it also exports fruits and vegetables, but politicians allowed housing schemes to be built in rural areas. Due to which, agriculture production has gone down and as a result Pakistan who used to export vegetables and fruits, now has to import them from other countries.
Secondly, constructing houses and home schemes in the outskirts will affect the atmosphere in a negative way. Noise and air pollution is mostly faced by people living in cities, as there are a lot of houses, offices, and traffic in cities. As compared to cities, villages have less to almost no pollution. Thus, people often visit villages in order to enjoy fresh air and clean environment. Building houses in the village will increase pollution in the village, affecting our atmosphere negatively. For example, when I was younger, we often used to visit village two hours away from our home, in order to consume fresh air and avoid noise pollution. Now we rarely go there as it seems the same as the city we live in. since there are now housing scheme built in the village too.
To conclude, one should avoid building houses in the outskirts to save our home countries economy and atmosphere.
