    The increase in population has led to problems in a lot of countries where more homes are needed for the people. The main dilemma is whether these homes be made in existing cities or should they use up spaces in the countryside for building towns. In my opinion, we should utilize the space in cities more innovatively and curb the practice of overusing areas in the countryside as it harms the environment.

    Often, we see space in cities wasted due to improper planning by the local authorities. By effectively utilizing space and minimizing land wastage we can build more homes for people in cities. Most office goers prefer city life as it cuts their commute, and they reach their workplace faster. Innovative modern ways to build skyscrapers and homes can cut the cost down and also be more sustainable. Using biodegradable recyclable materials for building construction is cost-effective, readily available, and does not harm the environment.

    While on the other hand, if we use up the countryside for homes it would encroach into the habitat of other living things. We cannot harm the environment and other species of plants and animals for our needs. Another point is that if arable land is converted to towns, then other problems like shortage of farmlands for agriculture, soil erosion by lack of trees to hold the topsoil will occur. This will lead to a food shortage for the masses and the destruction of fertile soil which could be used for feeding the population.

    Hence to conclude, to provide homes for people more effectively it is better to use wisely the spaces in cities. Countryside and rural areas must go unharmed in order to conserve our environment.
