Titre : Sustainable use of natural resources in rural systems of eastern African drylands (Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania), strategies for environmental rehabilitation

Région : Afrique

Code du projet : IC18970139 FP4-INCO

Durée : From 1997-12-01 to 2001-05-31

Descriptif
The main objectives are : * To define the scientific basis on which the local environmental management and crop production is based. * To develop models and strategies in the sectors responsible for agricultural product development and distribution in order to create a permanent link between the scientific institutions dealing with natural resources and environment and planners. * To develop an integrated Information System, including Geographic Information System (GIS), Remote Sensing (RS), Image Processing System (IPS), Decision Support System (DSS), Data Base and Modelling, and guidelines for applications in local and regional planning.
This project will provide conceptual and technical tools for evaluating strategies for environmental rehabilitation. It will answer the question of whether and how GIS, RS, IPS and DSS techniques can support the planning activities of (non)-institutional organizations to rehabilitate degraded and degrading areas. It will develop an integrated Information System which will include indigenous knowledge in the planning and implementation of rehabilitation activities. The system will offer an environmental assessment methodology which can be used for political and socio-economic decisions at different hierarchical administrative levels starting from the single village.
