The challenges and options of modelling soil loss for soil conservation planning in developing countries

, : The challenges and options of modelling soil loss for soil conservation planning in developing countries. Land degradation: a challenge to agricultural production Proceedings 5th Annual Scientific Conference, SADC land and water management research programme, Harare, Zimbabwe, 10-14 October, 1994: 156-166

In this paper it is argued that developing countries are the ones most threatened by soil erosion and land degradation. The paper further argues that although more recently, process based equations for predicting soil loss for erosion control and soil conservation planning have been developed and are being improved, only the Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) and Soil Loss Estimator for Southern Africa (SLEMSA) are the possible options for improvements and use in developing countries.
