Abstract
90% of the population of Malawi lives in traditional village areas and many of those in other areas retain strong ties with the land. There is a growing awareness in most parts of Malawi of the need to conserve, by every means possible, the vital natural resources of water and soil, e.g. an important aspect of the Lilongwe Land Development Scheme is that it is based on land use planning and the protection of arable lands with physical water- and soil-conservation measures. But in many other areas a great amount of damage continues to occur as a result of run-off water and splash erosion.
