SLM Approaches

An SLM Approach defines the ways and means used to implement one or several SLM Technologies. It includes technical and material support, involvement and roles of different stakeholders, etc. An Approach can refer to a project/program or to activities initiated by land users themselves.
All information documented through WOCAT questionnaires is made available in the Global SLM Database and can be used to disseminate SLM knowledge and improve decision-making for further implementation and spreading of SLM practices.

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.
