Directions for research in land degradation

Directions for research in land degradation

Book of Abstracts, Development Studies Association, Annual Conference 1986, University of East Anglia: p.11

Research on the social, economic and political impact of land degradation is beset by a high degree of uncertainty. This is due partly to lack of reliable time series data, technical problems with relating rates of soil erosion to productivity, the identification of human agency in degradation and other causes. Current responses have been to develop simpler and more robust methods of measurement, and to reorganize bureaucratic structures to deal with degradation.
