Institute full name:

Erosion and Soil & Water Conservation Group
Wageningen University

Institute acronym:

ESW-WU

Institute profile:

Research of the Erosion and Soil & Water Conservation Group of Wageningen University (ESW-WU) focuses on physical and socio-economic processes that cause land degradation, and the design of technology that conserves soil and water  and tailor it to the local socio-economic conditions.  We mostly operate in interdisciplinary groups in developing countries, but are active in Europe, the USA, Australie and elswhere also. ESW-WU has at its diposal laboratory facilities, field monitoring devices, an experimental field in The Netherlands and research facilities in several tropical countries. Research is undertaken on scales ranging from the plot, field, farm, village to the watershed. ESW-WU is the leading partner in several interdisciplinary projects on soil & water conservation and has formal cooperation agreements with many EU and DC partners. Through collaborative research ESW-WU participates in NUFFIC/NPT- programmes in Eritrea, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Uganda and collaborates with CGIAR-centres such as ICRISAT, ICRAF and CIP
