Sustainable Land Management in the Tropics


F. Zaal, K. Burger

Bringing together case studies from Kenya, Benin, Cameroon and the Philippines, this volume provides a multidisciplinary overview of the economics of natural resource management in Tropical regions, at household and village level. By comparing a wide array of climatic and economic conditions, it examines the effect of location and access to the market – as well as the importance of national policies – have on soil and water conservation.
