Accelerated soil erosion is a combination of natural factors and human intervention that are not commonly in harmony. There have been attempts to arrest soil erosion in the Amhara region for the last thirty years, partly through the support of the world food programme. Farmers have also developed their own conservation and land management.

        Like many countries in Asia and the Pacific, the People’s Republic of China (PRC) has long faced a balancing act between economic development and ecological protection.

        Worldwide, tropical forests are highly vulnerable to industrial exploitation. During the past century, tropical Asia-Pacific islands, ranging from Malaysia to the Solomon Islands and westward across the equatorial Pacific, have experienced severe forest loss and degradation, exacerbated by some of the worst-known land-use practices, including heavy industrial logging (e.g., Fig. 1A-B) [1 –3].   Soil salinization in Iraq is caused primarily by poor irrigation practices such as the use of saline water and soil compaction, leading to low drainage. According to the FAO, it is estimated that Iraq loses about 25 hectares per year of agricultural cropping land as a result of salinity.
