    Soil erosion, sedimentation and impacts on wetlands and flood control: It is proposed that a major role of Kagera TAMP is to improve land management practices (cropping, livestock, etc) through for example, conservation agriculture, agroforestry, zero grazing, fodder and rangeland management and above all integrated ecosystem approaches. Another unique contribution of this book is the examination of the role of government and communities in managing water resources in Ethiopia. Results show that the top-down approach used by the socialist Derg government in soil and water conservation and social programs exacerbated water problems and reduced community participation.3/5(1).
