About this book

Looks at soil and water conservation from a global perspective. In total, 42 soil and water conservation technologies and 28 approaches are described - each on four pages with photographs, graphs and line drawings - from more than 20 countries around the world. This unique presentation of case studies is drawn from WOCAT's extensive database. These and many other experiences deserve to be documented, analysed and used for decision support. The book is, furthermore, a prototype for national and regional compilations of sustainable land management practices.

Various land use categories are covered here - cropland, as well as forest and grazing land. The technologies range from terraces to agroforestry systems; from rehabilitation of common pastures to conservation agriculture; from vermiculture to water harvesting. Several are well established successes - others are innovative, relatively unknown and full of promise.

The technologies are matched by studies of the `approaches' that have underpinned their development and spread. Some of these approaches are descriptions of projects, but there are also fascinating explanations of how spontaneous development and spread has taken place. The book does not stop with case studies: there are two analytical sections, taking the technologies and approaches in turn. These uncover common elements of success, and offer hope for productive conservation at local level with simultaneous global environmental benefits. Finally there are policy pointers for decision makers and donors, who are challenged to invest further - to make the land greener.
