Sustaining the soil: indigenous soil and water conservation in Africa

Indigenous soil and water conservation practices are rarely acknowledged in the design of conventional development projects. Instead, the history of soil and water conservation in Africa has been one of imposing external solutions without regard for local practice. This collective volume documents farmers’ practices, exploring adaptations carried out by farmers in response to changing circumstances. It includes 27 case studies from Sudan (Mohamed Osman El Sammani, Sayed Mohamed Ahmed Dabloub, Yagoub Abdallah Mohamed), Morocco (M. Ait Hamza, Miloud Chaker with H. El Abbassi and A. Laouina), Niger (Abdou Hassan), Mali (Joanne Wedum et al., Armand Kassogu et al.), Burkina Faso (Matthieu Ouedraogo and Vincent Kabor, Maja Slingerland and Mouga Masdewel), Nigeria (Are Kolawole, J.K. Adewumi and P.E. Odo, Kevin Phillips-Howard, E.M. Igbokwe), Zimbabwe (J. Hagmann and K. Murwirwa), Zambia (Patrick M. Sikana and Timothy N. Mwambazi), Ghana (David Millar with Roy Ayariga and Ben Anamoh), Tanzania (J.M. Shaka, J.A. Ngailo and J.M. Wickama, A.C. Mbegu, Anderson J. Lema, A.E.M. Temu and S. Bisanda), Swaziland (M. Osunade and C. Reij), Ethiopia (Kebede Asrat, Kederalah Idris and Mesfin Semegn, Million Alemayehu, Hans-Joachim Krger et al.), Transkei, South Africa (Kevin Phillips-Howard and Chris Oche), Cameroon (Franois Hiol Hiol, Dieudonn Ndoum Mbeyo and Franois Tchala Abina, Paul Tchawa), Malawi (Julius H. Mangisoni, G.S. Phiri).
