The rate of degradation and depletion of natural resources in Africa has been accelerated as a result of the increasing population pressure. The lack of reliable quantitative and qualitative information on vegetation cover and land use at national and regional levels has been the major limiting factor in development planning, sustainable management of agriculture and forestry resources, the food security early warning systems, environmental monitoring as well as in biodiversity assessment and protection.

Ce phénomène a deux caractéristiques a savoir le pourcentage faible quoique croissant de la population urbaine et le taux d'accroissement élève des populations urbaines (ainsi que de la population totale).

Prom several converging estimates, world's population is expected to reach 6.1 billion by the year 2000 or 1.7 billion more than in 1980. Most of the increase in population will be generated by developing countries in general and by African countries in particular. This means there will have to be a substantial increase in world food production of at least 50 percent.
