When most of the population in developing countries do not have food to eat and place to live, it is immaterial to talk about saving forests as a gesture to protect our environment. The aim should be to utilize maximum land for food production and making homes for the homeless

Forests are much important due to their natural benefits as these are natural sources and oxygen producers for all the nations. Estimated 25% area of any country should be covered with trees and forest for economic growth and development. Beside their role in a country’s GDP, forests are also important for many reasons like production of wood, elimination of pollution, green natural environment, healthy air and many other.
Our world is 70% water and 30% land. This land is separated in 7 large blocks which we call continents. 30% of this landmass is forests. The 7 continents are then divided by borders which define countries. Now it is the responsibility of each country to maintain 25% of the forests of the total area of the country. If the percentage is low more forests must be planted to reach this target and if it is higher steps must be taken to prevent the decline. Only following this way the survival of this world can be guaranteed and our future generations to see a healthy world. Environmentalists have concluded that the current change in environment is mainly due to deforestation and if it continues at this rate by 2050 half of the world forests will be eliminated, which will cause more pollution and many other health problems and also new diseases will erupt.
Instead of destroying forests we must concentrate on finding ways of producing food more efficiently using the land available. More money must be invested on agricultural research to cater for the food problems. Also those countries which have lesser land area for agricultural activities must be bound by international laws to import food rather than destroying their forest land that will pose health threats to the whole humanity. As for making homes is concerned, there is a lot of land apart from forests where human life is possible and this can be done more easily. Governments must ban real estate agencies in their countries to develop new residential plots by destroying forests. Rather those companies which utilizes barren lands and turn that land into new cities must be supported and encouraged.
