Résumé
Soil salinization is caused by unsustainable agronomic practices and brackish groundwater usage that undermines the long-term sustainability of the agroecosystems. Sustainable land management (SLM) practices need to be adopted to improve soil health. Using household survey data, this thesis develops a composite soil quality indicator, examines the factors affecting the speed of adoption of SLM practices, and assesses households’ willingness to accept land restoration and conservation(LRC) programs. Key policy implications of the findings include institutional arrangements and incentive provisions to accelerate the adoption of SLM practices and enhance households’ participation in land restoration and conservation programs in Pakistan.
