In Mongolia, 2.5 million people occupy more than 600,000 square miles of land (about 1560000 sq km). Most of this population lives in urban areas, since the development of pastures in the vast deserts of Mongolia is difficult, in particular due to droughts and dust storms, with the result that some parts of the country are almost as desert as in Genghis Khan’s time.
5. Country in the jungle – Suriname
The forest area is 14.8 million hectares (57,000 square miles), which is 91% of the total land area of Suriname (16.3 million hectares, or 63,000 square miles). Suriname’s extensive forest and low population, about 400,000 in the capital and coastal cities, give it one of the lowest deforestation rates in the world. Only 5 percent of the population lives in tropical forests, these are indigenous peoples and six Negro tribes – descendants of runaway slaves who recreated forest communities a few centuries ago and today retain their traditional West African style.
