Problems faced in equatorial regions

Problems faced in equatorial regions

  • Rampant occurrence of pests and diseases which attack man, livestock, crops and this has scared away settlements leading to low development rates.



  • Heavy rainfall received throughout the year and existence of the dense forested regions has made the establishment of transport network very difficult.
  • The region with its dense forests has made it difficult to exploit such areas leading to remoteness.
  • The equatorial forests are commonly inhabited by robbers and this has constrained any attempts to the development of the region.
  • The heavy rainfall received throughout the year has caused a danger of erosion especially in areas where agriculture is practiced.
  • Heavy rainfall may also lead to flooding which destroys peoplesÂ’ lives and property.
  • Leaching of the soils due to heavy rains and erosion has also led to serious loss of soil fertility.
  • High rate of weed growth hence increasing costs of farming and clearance of land.
