Climate-smart soil, water and nutrient management options in semiarid West Africa: a review of evidence and analysis of stone bunds and zaï techniques


This paper analyses prevailing key water and nutrient interaction practices (namely stone bund, zaï and half-moon techniques) in order to explore how their outcomes could be linked to climate change adaptation and mitigation. These successful examples can form the basis for informing farmers and agricultural extensionists, as well as future agricultural development plans, policies and investments that pursue sustainable food and nutritional security in the West African Sahel.
