Ecological and economical requirements for sustainable land use in sub-Saharan Africa

Ecological and economical requirements for sustainable land use in sub-Saharan Africa

Forum for Development Studies ( 2): 211-219

The necessary increase in food production can be obtained either through an increase in the cultivated area or through an increase in production per unit of land.
