Abstract:Population increase in Swaziland has resulted in decreasing farm size and there are signs that this has resulted in land degradation and decreasing subsistence production. Although the Rural Development Areas Programme as a strategy of agricultural transformation and resource management has generally improved standards of living in rural areas, soil conservation and pasture improvement targets have not been achieved. In order to sustain land resources in continuous agricultural production there is a need not only to plan land use according to capability, but also to formulate a comprehensive resource management and conservation strategy and enforce it at both the national and local levels.
