    In sub-Saharan Africa, intensification of agriculture and rational use of arable land are essential for long-term growth (Gros, 1979, Johnston, 1990, Oluf et al., 990). Extensive cultivation methods and the population explosion are pushing the limits of cultivated land every day; deforestation accelerates; the productive capacity of the land is reduced

    Rwanda

    Rwanda is currently in transition from a period of emergency to one of development following the 1994 war and genocide. Before the tragic events of 1994, the Agricultural Statistics Division (DSA) of the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Resources and Forestry (MINAGRI) maintained a comprehensive database of agricultural statistics. The DSA was responsible for providing information on agricultural policy based on annual surveys of rural households. These surveys, which were interrupted in 1994 were resumed in 1999 by the Food Security Research Project (FSRP) and the DSA of MINAGRI.

    <p>Land surface models describe the exchange of heat, moisture and momentum between the land surface and the atmosphere. These models can be solved regionally using remote sensing measurements as input. Input variables which can be derived from remote sensing measurements are surface albedo, surface temperature and vegetation cover. A land surface model using those land surface characteristics is presented i.e. the Surface Energy Balance Index (SEBI) model.

    Nepal

    <p>The title of my Thesis is "Farmers' Laws and Irrigation: Water Rights and Dispute Management in the Hills of Nepal". This is based on a research I conducted in the Thulotar Kulo irrigation system in Nepal, during 1997 and 1998. Thulotar Kulo is a farmer-managed irrigation system.</p><p>Although this is a case study of a small system, attention has also been given to the wider context of Nepal in terms of the conflicts and the relationships between customary laws, state laws, and local laws that pertain to water management.

    Het blok Luddeweer-Overschild bestaat grotendeels uit holocene afzettingen. Oudere afzettingen uit het Pleistoceen (dekzand) komen plaatselijk binnen 120 cm - mv. voor. De afzettingen uit het Holoceen bestaan uit veen en zeeklei. Binnen de zeekleigronden zijn poldervaaggronden, drechtvaaggronden, leekeerdgronden en liedeerdgronden onderscheiden. De moerige gronden zijn onderverdeeld in broekeerdgronden en plaseerdgronden. Binnen de veengronden zijn koopveengronden, weideveengronden en waardveengronden onderscheiden. In het blok Luddeweer-Overschild zijn 5 grondwatertrappen onderscheiden.
