Title:Combating desertification: a new approach towards environmental sustainability
Author:Mushala, H.M.
Book title:Globalization, democracy and development in Africa: challenges and prospects
Geographic term:Swaziland - Eswatini
Abstract:Desertification in Swaziland is mainly an outcome of failure in resource management. While the problem may not be as severe as in some other countries, given the size of Swaziland, the threat posed by desertification is quite alarming. Current plans to combat desertification include the National Development Strategy, the Swaziland Environmental Action Plan, the National Environment Policy, and the Economic and Social Reform Agenda. Lessons from other countries, such as the Hifadhi ya Ardhi Dodoma land rehabilitation project in Tanzania, can be of great benefit. Bibliogr. [ASC Leiden abstract]
