Given are two figures showing four different reasons cause worldwide land degradation ( over-grazing, deforestation, over-cultivation, and other ) and how their impact on three regions in the world ( North America, Europe, and Oceania) in 1990s.

Overall, of these regions, Europe was responsible for the largest proportion of land which became less productive while the least percentage was in North America.

The main cause of global land degradation was over-grazing, which accounted for 35% of land degraded. It was followed by deforestation and over-cultivation, stood at 30% and 28% respectively. A mere of 7% of degradation was caused by other reasons.

Europe, which had the largest percentage of total land degraded(23%) also suffered from over-cultivation and over-grazing, which caused 7.7% and 5.5% of land degradation respectively.
