Extractions: GEO-2000 home page Alternative Policy Study: West and Central Africa Summary The countries of West and Central Africa are going through political, social and economic transition. At the same time they have to address vital problems of growing poverty and deteriorating life support systems. A business-as-usual scenario driven by demographic change and slow economic growth will lead to negative environmental consequences including loss of biodiversity, land shortages for agriculture and greater susceptibility to natural disasters. On the positive side, the sub-region is well-endowed with human and natural resources and civil society is becoming empowered. Political and institutional reforms, although slow, remain the biggest hope for policy change. Political will, sound politics and governance and inter-regional cooperation will determine how resources are allocated and used. There are a number of alternative policy options which would alleviate current trends. On the political side, an effective population strategy and the reform of land tenurial rights can go a long way to halting land degradation. On the technical side, several policy initiatives can be taken: agriculture can be intensified with the use of organic fertilisers, agro-forestry can be promoted and adopted technology can be used for gradual industrialisation. Finally, inter-regional cooperation should be promoted. This cooperation could be based on the cooperative advantage principle and should exploit the complementary natures of Sahelian and forested areas, or land-locked and coastal areas.

Land: Sustainable Agriculture The National Research Council defines sustainable agriculture or alternative agricultureas an approach to agriculture that deliberately integrates and takes http://www.texasep.org/html/lnd/lnd_2agr_susdev.html
Extractions: To address some of the environmental problems associated with agricultural production, agriculture specialists, farmers, and ranchers have been promoting and engaging in practices that lead to sustainable agriculture: a system that protects the environment and increases the vitality of family farms. The underlying goals of sustainability are agricultural productivity and profitability, and environmental quality. The National Research Council defines sustainable agriculture or alternative agriculture as an approach to agriculture that "deliberately integrates and takes advantage of naturally occurring beneficial interactions." It is not a singular approach to production agriculture, but rather a range of practices, including integrated pest management, organic farming, crop rotations, and tillage and planting practices that reduce soil erosion. FYI The term sustainability refers to economic development that takes full account of the environmental consequences of economic activity and is based on the use of resources that can be replaced or renewed and therefore are not depleted (Source: Michael Allaby, The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Ecology [Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1994], 376.)
