Abstract:Major development constraints for the semi-desert zone in western Sudan include physical isolation, environmental problems, a little developed resource base, and population mobility and structure. The development strategy for the semi-desert zone should be regional. focusing on local problems and providing for their solution. Equal emphasis should be placed on the following three components: improvement programmes for resource base and desertification control; improvement of the regional economy; and the establishment of an effective regional administration to facilitate planning, management, and delivery of services and programmes.
