Publication of a new "Dossier thématique du CSFD" on "Ecological engineering for sustainable agriculture in arid and semiarid West African regions"

Publication of a new

The 11th issue of Les dossiers thématiques du CSFD (Comité Scientifique Français de la Désertification/French Scientific Committee on Desertification) looks at potential contributions of ecological engineering to the management of agrosylvopastoral systems in sub-Saharan drylands areas.

It helps to describe and define agroecological practices. Based on the authors’ and contributors’ experience, West Africa is focused on to illustrate the ecological intensification to agricultural production in the broad sense. Examples from non-African tropical dryland areas worldwide are also discussed to illustrate the potential of agroecological engineering to sustainable land management and therefore to the fight against desertification.

Dominique Masse (Agronomy-Ecology, IRD), Jean-Luc Chotte (Soil Ecology - Microbial Diversity, IRD) and Eric Scopel (Ecological engineering, Cirad), coordinated this Dossier.

CSFD is hosted and managed by Agropolis International.
