Soil and water conservation projects in sub-Saharan Africa have had a troubled record over the past 50 years. Their failure has had extremely serious consequences especially for those people living in the marginal dryland areas.
However, with the help of a handful of projects, people across Africa have demonstrated that they are motivated, competent and capable of protecting their environment. This book, and accompanying video, are about the main lessons to be learnt from new approaches to soil and water conservation in sub-Saharan Africa.
Six case studies are covered, two each from Burkina Faso, Kenya and Mali. They show how, in the wake of many failures, some success has been achieved in projects where the participation of local people has been recognised as the crucial issue.
The book and video have been produced expressly for development workers in arid and semi-arid Africa on whose experience they are based. They will also be of general interest to a wider audience concerned with environmental issues.
Will Critchley works for the Centre for Development Cooperation Services, Free University Amsterdam. He has considerable experience of conservation and farming systems in sub-Saharan Africa, having spent much of the last two decades working both in projects in Africa and as a consultant in planning and evaluation.
