Sustainable land management in marginal mountain areas of the Himalayan region

Special issue : Part I

Auteur :
PARTAP, T.

Description :
There is little arable land in the hills and mountains of the Himalayan region, where small, marginal farmers try to eke out a living. A new thinking advocates research in niche based sustainable production systems on marginal lands as part of the effort to provide food security and sustainable livehoods for such marginal farmers. The International Centre for Integrated Mountains Development's (ICIMOD) afforestation strategies for degraded marginal areas are discussed, with reference to Sikkim and China. - (SLD)
