Comments on: "TOEFL Independent Writing Task – The need for land" (1)

  1. I reckon that in my country there is more need for land to be developed for housing and industry than land to be left in its natural condition. Brazil is a massive country and it has a very large territory, being the 5th largest country in the world. Despite its large size, fight for land is usual and decisions about how to promove land use are very controverse.

    Most of land is owned by few people. This fact causes a high level of povetry. Excluded people have a great need for land to be left in its natural condition. For example, indigenous and riverside populations are highly dependant on natural resources to survive. They live by collecting fruits and seeds, by agricultural practices, and by fishing. If their land is just taken away, they will have no way to survive and probably are going to move and increase city population living in slums.

    It is obvious that Brazil need to grow economicaly as it is qualified as a third world country. The development requires land for housing and industry. Industry needs space to work. Employment is created by Industry. People welfare increases when Industry is going well. Wages become higher and lots of services are improved by a growing demand. Completing the chain is the necessity for housing.

    Brazil has to use its lands in order to increase development but the Government must work to provide ways for indigenous and riverside populations to live welfare. A government concerned with social issues of the land use to be developed for housing and industry is the key for attending both economical and population needs. Hence, most of land use must be developed for housing and industry and a smaller part of it must be preserved as a biodiversity bench of natural resources.
