dc.description.abstract"The objective of this paper is to assess our current knowledge of indigenous SWC in Africa and to identify research needs and policy requirements in the field of African indigenous SWC. Three major issues are explored in the main text. The first demonstrates that despite a growing awareness of its importance, African indigenous SWC continues to be neglected. The second analyses present trends in indigenous SWC. Are indigenous techniques increasingly abandoned and if so, why? Can we identify cases where indigenous SWC techniques continue to be maintained and even expanded? The third briefly examines the effect of project interventions. Some examples will be given of project interventions damaging indigenous SWC and of others improving the efficiency of indigenous SWC techniques. The annex contains details and diagrams of indigenous SWC from Cameroon, Morocco, Somalia, Sudan and Tunisia." (Excerpt from Introduction)
