Description

Since the mid-1990's, growing concerns about environmental degradation, declining agricultural productivity and increasing population pressures have led governments and agencies to seek new approaches to natural resource management.

Fertile Ground presents the findings of the first formal study and in-depth research into the impacts of participatory watershed management in a wide
range of agro-ecological and socioeconomic settings in Africa, Asia, Australia and Latin America.

The twenty-three case studies present a rich and complex picture of the problems, achievements and continuing challenges faced by conservation professionals and farmers around the world. At the same time, they reveal how difficult it is to scale-up and institutionalize participatory approaches in large, sector-based programs, particularly in government bureaucracies.
