Degradation of natural areas can occur by human and natural factors among these practices inappropriate cultivation, environmental pollution and sprawl of certain productive activities, overexploitation, and others.

The most visible consequences of this degradation are changes in vegetation, soil, loss of biodiversity and of the capacity of ecosystems to resist to extreme natural phenomena.

Activities that FIAES carries out:
