About the study

The study investigated long-term change in environmental management and rural livelihoods in Maradi department (south of Tarka Valley) from 1960 to 1999. Change in Maradi is linked socially, demographically and economically with Nigeria, so this study is integrated with that being carried out in the neighbouring Kano Region. The aim was policy lessons to facilitate investment in natural resource management under conditions of rapid population growth and/or high population density. Led by Dr Yamba Boubacar (CRESA, Université Abdoul Moumouni, Niamey) the Niger team included Dr Aboubacar Awaiss and Dr Ali Mahamane (Université Abdoul Moumouni), Dr Martha Diarra Doka (Institut des Recherches en Science Humaines), Dr Seyni Hamadou (INRAN), Dr Issaka Mahamane (INRAN/PNRA) and John Nelson (Drylands Research).
