Two recent publications, a book Wetland Management and Sustainable Livelihoods in Africa and a report Wetlands and People have highlighted both the benefits and the risks of wetland agriculture. Both argue for a people-centred approach to wetland management and make the case for empowering people to manage their own wetlands in their own.

Summarizing, intensive agricultural use of wetlands has definitely altered their ecological character, because the growth of crops or raising of livestock necessitate reclamation measures such as drainage or tillage. In such wetland areas, biodiversity has often been impacted severely and large parts may no longer even qualify as by: Department of Agriculture – Western Province PREFACE Western Province is highly populated province in the country with rapid urbanization.

Since the s, these wetlands have suffered from high-intensity agricultural reclamation. According to our statistics and remote sensing data interpretation, the total wetland area has shrunk from × 10 6 ha in to × 10 6 ha in to × 10 5 ha in (), so more than four-fifths of the natural wetlands have been lost over the last 60 by: Downloadable (with restrictions).
