Land is the integrating component of all livelihoods depending on
farm, forest, rangeland, or water (rivers, lakes, coastal marine)
habitats. Due to varying political, social, and economic factors, the
heavy use of natural resources to supply a rapidly growing global
population and economy has resulted in the unintended mismanagement and
degradation of land and ecosystems.
Sustainable Land Management provides strategic focus to the
implementation of sustainable land management (SLM) components of the
World Bank's development strategies. SLM is a knowledge-based
procedure that integrates land, water, biodiversity, and environmental
management to meet rising food and fiber demands while sustaining
livelihoods and the environment.
This book, aimed at policy makers, project managers, and development
organization, articulates priorities for investment in SLM and natural
resource management and identifies the policy, institutional, and
incentive reform options that will accelerate the adoption of SLM
productivity improvements and pro-poor growth.
