CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food
Library ResourceInformes e investigacionesAgosto, 2010Global
The dry areas face severe challenges to sustainable development. The biggest challenges – food insecurity, water scarcity, land degradation, and climate change – are closely inter-related. The effects of climate change will be felt globally, but the dry areas will be particularly hard hit. Climate change will exacerbate water scarcity, rainfall variability, and the decline in the natural resource base, and thus could have a profound impact on food security.

The Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and other research, predict a significant future increase in the frequency and intensity of heavy rainfall events in many regions. This increase runoff and soil erosion, and reduce agricultural productivity, as well as increasing risks of flood damage to crops and infrastructure. Implementing adaptation measures and improved land management through erosion control and soil protection are among those that protect water and agriculture and limit their vulnerability.

This study determined the patterns and magnitudes of land cover
and use changes, their driving factors and impacts on soil quality
and pasture productivity in Nakasongola district. Satellite data
(1970 - 2009), surveys, soil and pasture sampling techniques
were used. Woody and bare encroachments are major changes
affecting soil quality and pasture productivity. Changes in fire
regimes, poor stocking densities, termites, climatic variability
and tree cutting are major drivers of the land cover and use
