About this book

Focusing on the technical, social, and economic issues involved in watershed management, the author explores ideas for bettering land use practices and the condition of soil water resources. Integrated Watershed Management in the Global Ecosystem is based on an international symposium of the world's leading experts and practitioners in soil and water conservation exploring an "ecosystem-based" management approach to the problem. Readers of this volume will quickly appreciate why inattention to the issues of continued land and water degradation stresses human populations. This volume seeks positive results through better understanding of the issues and improved management approaches.
