Land Degradation in Tanzania: Perception from the Village
AbstractLocal land users and officials often have conflicting perceptions of and responses to land degradation issues. This causes problems for officials in diagnosing and addressing the issue and is a major constraint on the successful implementation of policies and projects to address land degradation. This study looks at the perception and response gap between officials and land users in the diagnosis and remedy of land degradation. It also examines the dynamics of the loss of soil fertility and low productivity at the village level. The study's indings will help shape investment programs to enhance land productivity in Sub-Saharan Africa.
