Author: Awuda, Elhag Mekki
Abstract: The paper viewed desertification as a complex process - a combination between environmental interactions and social cultures leading to social, economic and ecological imbalance:- in dry ecosystems. Contribution of human factors to such interaction was pointed out to be due to (a) population dynamics (b) integration of society into wider socio-economic systems (c) Fluctuations, effectiveness and stability of governments. The paper raised the issue of several concepts which are need to be addressed; (a) Integrated approach concept where technologies, community aspirations, social culture and resources capabilities can be blended into one package (b) Multiple land-use concept which points to the fact that available land resource as to be managed in such a way as to render it useful for future generations. It is a balanced, rational and proper use of the resource (c) Project concept, for a project to be popular and acceptable . Certain objectives have to be met (I) provision of people with adequate supplies with basic needs and services (ii) conserving those resources that still exist (iii) increasing the region's long term sustained carrying capacity, and (d) The need for extension service:- To achieve these, experts have to work through rural people and solutions must be tailored to fit the contours, institutional as well as natural. All extension messages can be transmitted through almost any set of extension institutions.
