Publication Review: Multifaceted Impacts of Sustainable Land Management in Drylands
MetadataShow full item record
Water management practices such as water harvesting yield important environment and socio-economic benefits by reducing environmental risks, improving soil health and increasing crop yields, particularly in dry areas. Several types of water harvesting practices can be implemented depending on soil type, geology, material and labour force availability: floodwater harvesting practices, micro and macro catchment water harvesting, and roof-top or courtyard rainwater harvesting. These are only some examples of water management practices put to work in the dry areas of Asia, Africa and South America.
