Lands in the tropical and subtropical regions of the world are severely affected by land degradation due to deforestation, inappropriate land use and land mismanagement. Strong demographic pressure and unsustainable land use systems have increased the demand for land resources, pushing the limits of production to drier and more marginal lands. Soil fertility loss and accelerated erosion cause land degradation and lead to reduced land productivity. Deforestation entails loss of biodiversity and contributes to increased carbon emissions. Recent reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 1995) indicate that there is mounting evidence that these increased carbon emissions can result in global warming which is expected to have a detrimental impact on life on earth.
