Abstract

The conservation status of dambos, a particular type of wetland associated with the headwaters of rivers draining the central plateau area, is examined in terms of past and present utilisation and erosion problems. The past-1950 phase was one of increased pressure on land with a growing human and livestock population. Efforts to curtail dambo cultivation were not well-received by peasant farmers and may have compromised general conservation in the reserves
