Land degradation because of salinity and waterlogging is a world challenge afflicting approximately 1000000000 hectares and endangering the nutrition safeguard of not less than seventy five nations. because the social, fiscal and environmental charges of on and/off-farm reclamation options are excessive, agroforestry is now rising as a possible device, not just for arresting salinity and waterlogging, but in addition for different environmental companies like mitigating weather switch, sequestering carbon and restoring biodiversity. This book addresses the important concerns, ideas and practices with regards to rehabilitation utilizing agroforestry and contains many site-specific case stories from a few of the world’s standard catchments. Written by way of best researchers, the publication is a needs to, not just for scientists whose study pursuits lie in soil salinity, waterlogging and poor-quality waters, but additionally coverage makers, environmentalists, scholars, and educationists alike. extra importantly, it contributes to reversing the salinity traits and making sure the livelihoods of resource-poor farming households residing in those harsh agro-ecosystems.
