    EPWS begins with the identification of a water problem (quantity and/or quality) downstream. this problem has significant financial impact for water users (domestic, industrial, commercial). causes of the problem are located upstream as a consequence of unsustainable land use (subsistence agriculture) by poor farmers who degrade the ecosystem.

    It is often assumed that upstream land use practices have important impacts on water resources and affect the downstream users at a watershed scale. Payments by downstream users to upstream users for "environmental services" such as good water quality, less sediments or more regular water flow are widely discussed. However, much controversy exists about the direction and magnitude of such impacts, how they influence the relationships between upstream and downstream users, and which mechanisms al low for a sharing of resulting benefits and costs by all resource users in a watershed context. To address these issues, the FAO Land and Water Development Dicvision organized the electronic workshop "Lan-Water Linkages in Rural Watersheds" from 18 September to 27 October 2000. The present publication contains the proceedings of the workshop and two papers that set the stage for the workshop discussions. The complete workshop documentation, including discussion archive, background papers and cas e studies, is included on the CD-ROM that accompanies the document.

    This factsheet presents Kagera TAMP project progress to analyze, document and evaluate Sustainable Land Management (SLM) technologies and related approaches in the transboundary Kagera river basin. The aim is to generate knowledge on SLM management and at the same time help the project team to promote wide adoption of SLM technologies and approaches that can generate local, national and global benefits including: restoration of degraded lands, agro-biodiversity conservation and sustainable use a nd improved agricultural production, leading to increased food security and improved rural livelihoods and protection of the international waters of the Kagera river.
