Obstacles to tree planting for wood fuel in arid and semi arid lands with particular reference to india and kenya



Obstacles to tree planting for wood fuel in arid and semi arid lands with particular reference to india and kenya



International Tree Crops Journal 1(2-3): 147-162



Environmental factors and practical afforestation techniques are not the major constraints to tree planting in arid and semi-arid lands. More important are social features (including land use and tenure, community organization) and economic constraints (such as the lack of a monetarized economy, poor transport, marketing systems and poor understanding of long-term cost-benefit appraisal). There is a great need to devise incentives and encourage participation in tree planting schemes by local populations and for professional and non-professional training in extension techniques for arid zones.
