When is a hill considered degraded?

A hilly or mountaneous area is at risk from environmental degradation if it has the following features:-
1. it is prone to soil erosion;
2. landslides have occurred in such an area;
3. vegetation cover has been removed or is likely to be removed from the area at a rate faster than it is being replaced
4. any other land use activity in such an area is likely to lead to environment degradation
