At the landscape or watershed level, WOCAT has developed land management mapping tools including:
Land management at the landscape/ watershed level combines local land management in different land use types, fulfilling multiple claims and functions, with impacts on the whole landscape/ watershed. This includes interactions on a slope from hilltop to valley, up- and downstream within a watershed, or “up”- and “downwind” within a region affected by wind (and dust storms).
Land management at the local level addresses individual land management practices ranging from smallholder to large-scale practices within a large variety of Land Use Types (LUTs) such as cropland, grazing land, forest/ woodlands, mixed land, etc. It does not address the combination of various land management practices within a landscape, watershed, or administrative area.
