Relationship between demographic change and environmental productivity in Kissidougou, Guinea

Food policy in sub Saharan Africa: a new agenda for research and donor assistance: 29-36
Relationship between demographic change and environmental productivity in Kissidougou, Guinea
This chapter discusses an example of how natural resources can be the subject of sophisticated management by rural populations. The research programme traces the history of vegetation and land use in Kissidougou Prefecture of Guinea. The results show how local, social organization, together with indigenous natural resources management techniques, have influenced agro-ecological change. Greater resource use does not necessarily lead to increased environmental degradation.
