dc.description.abstractSmall dams provide water for household irrigation systems in Masvingo, Zimbabwe, but water capacity is threatened by siltation. CARE works with a variety of international organizations as well as local farmers to promote conservation practices in dam catchments. The study addresses erosion control, water-conserving farming techniques, and participatory planning. It includes the results of a socio-economic survey of local households and summarizes performance of a variety of soil conservation structures, planting methods, and seed varieties.
