This publication examines soil and water conservation technologies and approaches from a global perspective, using case studies from over 20 countries around the world. It addresses key environmental concerns such as desertification, poverty, water scarcity and conflicts. Various land use categories are covered (cropland, forest and grazing land) and technologies described include: conservation agriculture, manuring and composting including vermiculture, vegitative strips, agroforestry, water harvesting, gully rehabilitation, terraces and grazing land management. Co-published by the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Co-operation (CTA), FAO, UNEP and the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE) on behalf of the World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies (WOCAT), this publication sets new standards for the systematic documentation, evaluation and dissemination of knowledge on sustainable land management.
