This collection of Sustainable Land Management (SLM) practices was compiled as part of the International Fund for Agriculture Development (IFAD) funded project ‘Scaling up SLM practices by smallholder farmers: working with agricultural extension services to identify, assess and disseminate SLM practices’ implemented by the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE) of the University of Bern, Switzerland, hosting the World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies (WOCAT) Secretariat, in partnership with Uganda Landcare Network (ULN) and close collaboration with the IFAD-supported loan investment in Uganda – the Programme for the Restoration of Livelihoods in the Northern Region (PRELNOR).

This collection of data and documentation of SLMTechnologies (Ts) and Approaches (As) serves an invaluable technical tool for a range of stakeholders: extension agents, SLM planners, policy makers, private sector, and farmers. It includes relevant information on different SLM practices including implementation details, ecological and socio-economic benefits and disadvantages etc. to support informed decision making in SLM.
Prior to documentation of SLM Ts and As, a reconnaissance study in the project area in Northern Uganda was conducted to obtain an overview of SLM practices, the status of extension service and characterization of key landscapes. A Trainer of Trainers (ToT) was then conducted targeting Local Government officials, zonal centers under the National Agricultural
Research Organisations (NARO), Directorate of Extension of Ministry of Agriculture Animal Industriesand Fisheries (MAAIF), Champion farmers and project staff of PRELNOR and ULN. Documentation using standardised WOCAT tools was done by ULN staff together with field extension staff including NARO research scientists.

The World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies (WOCAT) is a global Network that was established in 1992. The WOCAT Network launched efforts to compile, document, evaluate, share, disseminate, and apply sustainable land management (SLM) knowledge. It was far ahead of others in recognizing the vital importance of SLM and the pressing need for corresponding knowledge management. In early 2014, WOCAT’s growth and ongoing improvement culminated in its being officially recognized by the UNCCD as the primary recommended Global SLM Database for best practices.
