The world today is ad infinitum evolving and adjusting itself to an Urbanization , increasing population , their struggle to extract the most from mother nature to support their livelihood , be it Farming , mining ranching , or even industrialization , and to these trends Central America is no stranger , but in fact has picked up pace in development after the reunification of Belize , Costa Rica nicaragua , El Salvador , panama Honduras , Nicaragua and Guatemala

However , economic development and growth confines [banner_entry_middle]

itself not only to the perks of increased revenues and incomes , but also contributes to the steady depletion of natural energy sources used to fuel industries cater to the build-up of towns and cities around it and make way for farms , ranches and pastures , giving birth to problems like Deforestation

40 of all the forests have been either cleared or burned down in the last 40 years in Central America , mostly for the purpose of cattle pasture to feed the export market .
