In many places, new homes are needed, but the only space available for building them is in the countryside. Some people believe it is more important to protect the countryside and not build new homes there. What is your opinion about this. Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience

Generally, around the world, population is increasing continuously, with some
places experiencing

places, experiencing
exponential increase, in their population.
Consequently

this
requires that new homes be built, to accommodate the growing population. Unfortunately, only the
countryside
offers the space, needed for
this

However
, some people feel that, the protection of the
countryside
is more important than building new homes, which, from my point of view, is reasonable. Building of new homes, would lead to the destruction of some natural habitats, that are beneficial to man, as well as encourage deforestation, which ultimately, would contribute to global warming.
This

countryside
is mostly a serene environment, made up of trees, different animal species, streams as well as other things, that make up the natural
ecosystem
. Constructing homes in these areas, would lead to the destruction of the natural
ecosystem
, which in turn, causes the displacement of these animal species, from their natural habitat and ultimately, death.
Furthermore
, siting homes

the

, would encourage deforestation, a phenomenon, highly discouraged, all over the world.
This
is simply because, felling of trees, contributes to global warming, something the world is seriously concerned about. Ultimately, the
countryside
loses its serenity, when new homes are built there, as these homes, will attract urbanization, to these areas. The Emene area of Enugu State, Nigeria, a previously calm and serene area, is an example of a
countryside

construction. In conclusion, man depends largely on the
ecosystem
for survival and as
such
, must make every effort, to protect
this
ecosystem

instead
of destroying them, to build homes.
