Agrarian Science for Sustainable Resource Management in Sub-Saharan Africa


Edited By George Ouma, Franz-Theo Gottwald and Isabel Boergen

The livelihood of the world’s population depends mostly on natural resources: land, forest, water and the air we breath. The continual degradation and diminution of these resources due to the cultivation of land threatens the economic and social security of individuals, communities and countries as well as the intricate web of ecological, social, economic and cultural relations that bind the global community together. To be productive, our resources must be managed properly, enriched and harvested responsibly.
