Introduction and Overview:

The pie chart compares the most important reasons for land degradation. Overall, there are three main reasons, among which over-grazing ranks first.

A wordy body paragraph:

Over-grazing is responsible for the most significant share of land degradation (35%). There is little difference between the figures for deforestation and over- cultivation, as the former contributes the second highest percentage with 30%, while the share of the latter is marginally lower (28%). The remaining 7% is accounted for by a range of other factors. (55 words)

A leaner body paragraph:

Over-grazing is responsible for the most significant share of land degradation with 35%, followed by deforestation (30%). The contribution of over-cultivation is lower than deforestation by a margin of 2%, and the remaining 7% is accounted for by a range of other factors. (43 words)

An even leaner body paragraph:

Over-grazing causes the largest share of land degradation with 35%, followed by deforestation (30%). Over-cultivation ranks third with 28%, and the remaining 7% results from other factors. (27 words)
