Sustainable supply chain intervention: a case-based analysis of the economics of land degradation

Sustainable supply chain intervention: a case-based analysis of the economics of land degradation Sustainability has been considered central to developmental issues across the world. The exploitation of natural resources without concern for ecological balance resulted in environmental degradation, a disorder in social structure, and economic instability. Therefore, the focus for sustenance shifted towards retaining a balance between people, planet, and profit. Land is one of the valuable resources, and once degraded, causes loss of productivity, thus making an imbalance to supply chain sustainability.

Abstract

Sustainability has been considered central to developmental issues across the world. The exploitation of natural resources without concern for ecological balance resulted in environmental degradation, a disorder in social structure, and economic instability. Therefore, the focus for sustenance shifted towards retaining a balance between people, planet, and profit. Land is one of the valuable resources, and once degraded, causes loss of productivity, thus making an imbalance to supply chain sustainability. The present study examines the economics of land degradation and its impact on natural, social, and human capital. Domain for the survey is to explore the most degraded areas of the Bundelkhand region in Madhya Pradesh, India. We performed a comparative analysis between intervention and control villages to identify land remediation measures in the concerned villages. The study's findings significantly highlighted the performance variations across intervention and control villages concerning the selected indicators to match the desired Sustainable Development Goals.
