  • Fair deals for watershed services: Lessons from a multi-country action learning project

    Supplies of good clean water where, and when we need it – this is taken for granted by some, and is a pipedream for others. For most it depends in part on what people are doing up in the hills. The land in the hills may be used in ways that reduce the quantity and quality of water we get downstream. To get the water we want, we have traditionally ...

  • Kenya: Atlas of Our Changing Environment

    Through the use of satellite data, photographs, graphics and site-specific case studies, this 160-page atlas highlights environmental change in Kenya.
