This introductory chapter describes the aim of this book and how it can be used in the field when you carry out soil and water conservation. Soil erosion is the most dangerous ecological process observed in Ethiopia, degrading the precious soil resources which are the basis of agricultural production and food for the country's people and which provide numerous other ecosystem services.

Conservation tillage and conservation agriculture. Since the s, during the following 75 years, members of the farming community have been advocating a move to reduced tillage systems that use less fossil fuel, reduce run-off and erosion of soils and reverse the loss of soil organic by: United Nations This book presents the key debates that took place during the high-level segment of the Economic and Social Council, at which ECOSOC organized its first biennial Development.

Soil erosion is the displacement of the upper layer of soil, it is one form of soil degradation. This natural process is caused by the dynamic activity of erosive agents, that is, water, ice (glaciers), snow, air (wind), plants, animals, and humans.

In accordance with these agents, erosion is sometimes divided into water erosion, glacial.

Smallholder peasant agriculture, in some areas File Size: KB.Deforestation, clearance, clearcutting or clearing is the removal of a forest or stand of trees from land which is then converted to a non-forest use.

Deforestation can involve conversion of forest land to farms, ranches, or urban use. The most concentrated deforestation occurs in tropical rainforests. About 31% of Earth's land surface is covered by forests.

Current conservation policies often clash with public health initiatives in the developing world but they get little attention. There are real harms in advocating water and energy conservation over people. We take sanitary practices for granted in wealthier countries but hygienic practices require water in quantity and uninterrupted power to supply that water and related.
