Description


This publication explores sustainable land and water management technologies as communicated by local practitioners, watershed level experts, and national and international project staff in Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda. The book seeks to identify technologies that decrease crop and livestock production risks in particular regions and agro-ecological zones. Results clearly demonstrate that restoration of the degraded lands of the Kagera basin can only happen if and when land users have the capacity to organize themselves in response to land degradation, and to understand the impacts of increasing weather variability and climate change.
