SLM Technologies

“SLM Technology is a physical practice in the field that controls land degradation and/ or enhances productivity. A technology consists of one or several measures, such as agronomic, vegetative, structural, and management measures.”

In Sri Lankan context, government agencies, private sector, and other technical agencies are involved in development and dissemination of SLM technologies and SLM approaches. There are many best cases of sustainable use of land resources – including soils, water, vegetation, and animals.

SRICAT is partnered with WOCAT to document and assess such sustainable land management practices and make available to disseminate SLM knowledge and improve decision-making for further implementation and spreading of SLM practices. New SLM practices (Technologies and Approaches) can be documented by clicking following links below.
