    Kenya

    The relationship between land ownership and the sustainable use of natural resources is examined within the context of constitutional change in Africa. Using Kenya as an example, it is demonstrated that current constitutional arrangements put excessive emphasis on the protection of private property rights without requiring the corresponding duty of ecological stewardship. This has resulted in the failure of government policies and development practices to fully integrate environmental considerations into growth strategies.

    Kenya

    This study set out to analyze the agricultural potential in
    a newly settled Masongaleni Settlement Scheme being an example
    of an Arid and Semi-Arid land. The potentials here are the
    under-utilized rainfed, irrigated agriculture and livestock
    production particularly bee keeping. A comparison of selected
    rainfed crop yields from Masongaleni Settlement Scheme and
    similar ~cological areas is used to identify the potentials of
    the &chem~.
    On the irrigated crops, the study compares the farmers'

    Kenya

    The area northwest of Mt Kenya is undergoing rapid land use changes caused by a population influx. Rapid population growth and subsequent pressure on land raise the problem of how to increase and sustain agricultural production while at the same time conserving the natural resources (montane forest with Olea africana and Juniperus procera as main species at 2900 m asl.). Deterioration in soil physical and chemical properties following deforestation for agriculture can adversely affect crop production, especially from soils on mountain slopes.

    Afrique

    Historically, water management has not been easy in the sub-region. Three climate interlinked factors have had a direct influence on it. The first is the aridity that affects all countries of the sub-region. It is impressing to think that about ninety percent of the area of the Maghrebine countries receive less than 100 mm rainfall per year that is poorly distributed. The second is the huge evaporation from open water reservoirs. For example, annual losses due to canal evaporation reach 2 cubic km in Egypt. Another factor is drought.
