So the way I'm thinking you'd do this is give a cause and explain its impacts, e.g.
Cause: deforestation
Impact: increased surface runoff, decreased evapotranspiration

Another cause could be farming, dam or road building perhaps?

That's gonna depend upon your case study. What I tend to do is go for 2 paragraphs.

If possible it would be good to do one paragraph on potentially positive impacts and a paragraph on negative impacts.

E.g

Positive: White carpets in the Alps, high albedo, reflect insolation, reduced melting
Negative: slope preparation, involves removing rocks, vegetation etc. Leads to instability which causes avalanches to occur
