Carswell, Grace M (2002) Farmers and fallowing: agricultural change in Kigezi District, Uganda. Geographical Journal, 168 (2). pp. 130-140. ISSN 0016-7398Full text not available from this repository.
Focusing on the area of Kigezi, in south-western Uganda, this article examines land use change over a 50-year period. It shows that Kigezi, an area long considered to be suffering the effects of overpopulation, has never suffered the environmental catastrophes that have long been predicted. Instead, research suggests that farmers have successfully managed their land and maintained productivity.
