    Project Details


    Since 1993 a monitoring programme has been carried out in three small catchments with different land use practices (one forested and two cultivated - with and without soil conservation measures) in the south-western Tanzania. The aim of the project is, through theoretical considerations and with at least three years of field data, to assess the impact on the water balance and the runoff generation of the land use practice in the three monitored catchments. The project is carried out in collaboration with the Danida-financed Iringa Soil and Water Conservation Project and the Regional Hydrologist's Office in Iringa, who has carried out a major part of the data collection. So far the data collection has been running smoothlyy, and it is aimed at continuing the monitoring until 1999
