Angola Natural Hazards:
The country of Angola has locally heavy rainfall, which causes periodic flooding on the plateau.
Angola Environmental Issues:
The country of Angola has deforestation of its tropical rain forest, in response to both international demand for tropical timber and the domestic use for fuel. This results in loss of biodiversity. The country’s population pressure influences the overuse of pastures, and the subsequent soil erosion and desertification. The soil erosion contributes to water pollution, siltation of rivers and dams, and inadequate supplies of potable water.
