Erosion control... but for agricultural productivity (not reservoir maintenance or water quality)
I am working on a catchment in Ethiopia where erosion is impacting agricultural production in a major way- due to the loss of nutrients and as well as a growing medium on shallow, steep upslope farmland.
RIOS' two erosion objectives target "drinking water quality" and "reservoir maintenance" but these are not major concerns in the area.
My question is a bit theoretical: how might one go about doing "erosion control" that simply aims at minimizing erosion on agricultural land (one of my LUCs) and erosion hotspots ("priority areas" I suppose). Though page 50 of the manual explains that up to 3 "other objectives" can be created, I wonder if this is the best way forward?
Looking forward to your thoughts!
