About this book

Launched by the IUCN in Oslo in June 1989, this is the first in a series of Sahel Studies, designed to help development planners put their programmes for the drought-prone African region on a sound scientific basis. This book reviews the region's climate, population growth, food production and conservation areas, and has articles on agricultural prices, the economics of sustainable development, land tenure and fuelwood production.
