Soil and water conservation – historical and geographical perspectives on participation Alistair Sutherland

The Promotion of Soil Conservation and Rural Production (PROSCARP) is a national-level project aimed at improving the nutrition and health of smallholder farmers in Malawi. Since 1995 it has worked through Catchment Area Development Committees (CADCs), which have mostly been elected in village meetings and which cover a defined area. In 1999 these numbered over 300, scattered throughout the country.
