About this book

In many parts of the world, climatic variations are recognized as one of the major factors contributing to land degradation impacting on agricultural systems performance and management. The climate resources and the risk of climate-related or induced natural disasters in a region must be known in order to accurately assess sustainable land management practices. Only when climate resources are paired with management or development practices can land degradation potential be assessed and appropriate mitigation technologies developed.

This book, based on an International Workshop held in Arusha, Tanzania, presents state-of-the-art papers, real world applications and innovative techniques for combating land degradation. It also offers recommendations for effectively using weather and climate information for sustainable land management practices.
