Investigations of changes in the ecology and land use of the lower Atbara area, Sudan. A preliminary report


, : Investigations of changes in the ecology and land use of the lower Atbara area, Sudan. A preliminary report. Erde 119(3): 193-202

The Lower Atbara region was ecologically balanced prior to the construction of the Khashm el Girba dam and the start of drought conditions in about 1960. It has since then developed into an area severely affected by desertification. The resulting economic problems of the region are indicated by the high rate of emigration. Due to low rainfall, the riverine population could not practise rainfed cultivation in the Northern Butana.
