WOCAT has developed a well-accepted framework for documentation, monitoring, evaluation and dissemination of SLM knowledge, covering all steps from data collection, to a database and to using the information for decision support. WOCAT tools provide a unique, widely accepted and standardised method of application.
WOCAT has developed several questionnaires, always in the context of the different activity levels and relevance:
WOCAT has developed
the following questionnaires:
Once the questionnaires are filled out, the data can be included in the Global SLM Database.
Local level: Two comprehensive questionnaires on SLM Technologies and SLM Approaches for the documentation of practices have been developed and are constantly up-dated
The WOCAT framework is flexible and open for additional topics on global issues such as climate change adaptation and mitigation and watershed management not covered in the standardised WOCAT questionnaires. Therefore further modules can be added according to specific interests and needs.
