Introducing erosion prevention technologies

This strategy features in the framework of Agenda 21 as formulated at UNCED (Rio de Janeiro, 1992), now coordinated by the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development and implemented through national and local authorities.

Agenda 21 recommends: (a) promoting technologies of vegetative conservation measures for erosion prevention, [in situ] moisture management, improved cropping technology, fodder production and agroforestry that are low-cost, simple and easily adopted by local people; (b) encouraging integrated planning at the watershed and landscape level to reduce soil loss and protect surface and groundwater resources from chemical pollution.
