Bolivia Environmental Issues:
Bolivia has many environmental issues concerning the land. There is deforestation, which is occurring from international demand for tropical timber, and the clearing of land for agricultural purposes. There is soil erosion from poor cultivation methods (including slash-and-burn agriculture), overgrazing, and desertification. These land issues have resulted in a loss of biodiversity. Bolivia's water supplies, used for drinking and irrigation, are also affected by industrial pollution.
