Markus Giger, Hanspeter Liniger & Will Critchley (1999)

The World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies (WOCAT) has collected information on Soil and Water Conservation (SWC) approaches and technologies in 15 Eastern and Southern African countries. A total of 38 different approaches covering over 50 technologies served as a basis for this analysis. The purpose of the paper is to present WOCAT results for Eastern and Southern Africa relating to the use of incentives in SWC and the profitability of SWC.
