Answer in Brief
Give geographical reason.
Settlements are sparse in north-eastern Brazil.
- Human settlements are organized and structured human habitation in different regions.
- The concentration of settlement depends upon many important factors like the availability of water, natural resources, climatic conditions and the type of region.
- The settlements in the north-eastern parts of Brazil are scattered/dispersed in which the habitation regions are isolated or located far away from each other.
- This is because of the occurrence of severe droughts and famines in the highlands because of the scarcity of water.
Thus, agriculture practices will be lesser resulting in sparse settlements.
