Land: Nature’s gift to humanity

September 20, 2022by REDOC

Land is define as a free gift from nature. It is the part of nature on which all living and non-living things and animals live upon.

Land can also be defined as the surface of the earth’s crust. It is an integral part of our existence. It is the only connection between us humans and the ocean which consist of 71% of the earth’s body.

Land in economics includes not only the land as the surface of the earth but all other free gifts of nature or natural elements such as the forest, mineral resources, rivers oceans, and the atmosphere.

It  is a major contributor to human evolution and civilization. Many of the development that can happen to any country always occur in it. Lagos was an underdeveloped state many decades back, but we look at Lagos now as a mega city.

The land has so much importance to man in general both in terms of shelter and financial growth.   Everything on earth, every innovation, technology, and invention take off from the asset, making it an integral factor for the adequate substance of life.

Land is use for agricultural purposes

A farmer does everything on land; and without it, there will be no agriculture. It is equally useful in terms of recreational purposes. It can be use for wildlife conservation, such as game reserves and national parks.

Is a good source of mineral resources

It is from land that we get some of the minerals that we have today such as gold, crude oil, limestone, etc.

Is a source of material wealth

Even in primitive times, it has been a major source of wealth for our ancestors. They devise different ways to milk and build their wealth from it, as a factor of production it is of immense importance. As already pointed out, everything that we can use can be traced ultimately to it. Land may be rightly called the original source of all material wealth. The economic prosperity of a country is closely linked with the richness of its natural resources.
