The research presented in this book demonstrates how an integrated "systems" approach to farming in the watershed context increases the effectiveness of a production system and improves people's livelihoods. It takes an integrated approach, using one watershed in Ethiopia as a "laboratory" or model case study to focus on the interaction and interdependence between land, water, crops, soil, water harvesting, supplemental irrigation, forestry, socio-economic aspects, livestock and farm tools.
