Abstract

Documents the extent to which the Ethiopian highlands are already exposed to environmental degradation. Alarming figures show a need for rapid, decisive, and efficient conservation action. Shows that the only way to win the race against erosion and self-accelerating destruction of soil fertility and agricultural potential is to mobilize peasants' own interest in conservation as an integral part of farming. -from Editors
