Fighting an uphill battle: population pressure and declining land productivity in Rwanda

Fighting an uphill battle: population pressure and declining land productivity in Rwanda

MSU International Development Working Papers ( 58): iv + 28 pp.

A study of the structure of landholding as a set of mechanisms through which demographic changes in agrarian societies can alter the natural environment is presented. The research focuses on Rwanda's changing patterns of landholding with regard to tenure systems, farm size, geographical dispersion of holdings, steepness of slope and years of cultivation, and how this has contributed to the degradation of agricultural lands.
