INDIGENOUS SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION IN INDIA'S SEMI-ARID TROPICS John Kerr and N.K. Sanghi Introduction Soil erosion is a problem that imposes both on- and off-farm costs. As soil erodes, valuable moisture nd nutrients are lost, and the topsoil becomes increasingly shallow.

The decline ina yields that results is a private cost borne by farmers. Soil erosion, deforestation, and loss of pastureland pose additional problems for the environment. Mali also has an inadequate water supply: only 76% of city dwellers and 35% of people living in rural areas have access to pure water.

The country has about 60 cu km of renewable water resources, of which 97% of annual withdrawals is used for. Climate change remains a major development challenge in developing countries, particularly in the Sub Saharan African economies.

A study was conducted to assess the adoption of SWC practices under three farming systems (rice, cereals and mixed based) in the northern region of Mali. Data was collected from farmer households, 16 NGOs and 11 focus group discussions in 11 : G Diiro, Z B Birhanu, M Petri, R Tabo.
