Policy and Practice in the Management of Tropical Watersheds

9780471947455: Policy and Practice in the Management of Tropical Watersheds

The misuse and abuse of tropical watersheds in developing countries are a matter of concern to everyone working in development. Watersheds not only hold the key to erosion control, water storage and thus drought alleviation and agricultural success, but are also critical to downstream users. Using a combination of theory and practice, the author examines the issues of agriculture, animal husbandry, water for both domestic and industrial use, and fuelwood in the context of tropical watersheds. Developmental strategies are assessed, and many case studies are used. The book is intended as a tool for those actively engaged in Third World development as well as providing information for those concerned with the articulation of environmental issues and the human use of natural resources.
