From Se Research To Modeling Impacts Of Interventions (Part 4 5)

  1. 1. From Soil Erosion Research to Modeling Impacts of Interventions: The Case of Ethiopia By Gete Zeleke GMP UN expert group meeting on “Sustainable land management and agricultural practices in Africa: Bridging the gap between research and farmers” April 16 – 17, 2009, University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
  2. 2. Part IV: Mechanisms of capturing process to influence agricultural development positively
  3. 3. What is need to make informed decisions on Agri. deve? – Need to have resource database (at least soil, water, climate and genetic resources…) – Need to know rate and magnitude of soil erosion/runoff under different AEZ, soil types, land use systems, etc – Need to know what technology works, where, and under what condition – Need to know negative impacts of Soil erosion (land degradation) and positive impacts of applying improved land management practices
  4. 4. What are Possible approaches? Approach 1: • Measuring soil erosion in all watersheds • Measuring effects of all land management practices in different parts (too expensive) Approach 2: • Measure selective and representative watersheds • Measure selective and right combinations of LM practices (Achievable) Approach 3: • Extrapolate the result to ungauged areas using a combination of GIS, biophysical and economic models (Achievable)
  5. 5. Framework for Assessing Major LD Processes & Impacts (Approach 2) Processes captured Impacts quantified Types of Impacts • Soil loss due to Sheet & On- rill erosion by water • Production loss site • Loss of soil nutrients through DB, CRB & GR • water supply LD • irrigation water supply • Power Siltation/sedimentation generation Off- • Reservoirs/dams • Biodiversity site • Lakes • On farm lands • Destruction of productive lands
  6. 6. What do we have on this? Processes captured Impacts quantified Types of Impacts We know – SCRP & others • Soil loss due to Sheet & On- • Production rill erosion by water loss site • Loss of soil nutrients through DB, CRB & GR • water supply LD • irrigation water Very little supply • Power Siltation/sedimentation generation Off- • Reservoirs/dams • Biodiversity site • Lakes • On farm lands • Destruction of productive lands

  9. 9. Database from SCRP 1. Watershed level With and without • Catchment runoff - hydrographs } scenario • Sediment yield • Climate • Land use • Harvest • Soil depth • Socio-economic data 2. Plot level – Soil loss – Runoff – Yield – SWC measures impact/land use/design/type
  10. 10. Framework for Assessing Impacts of LM Practices (Approach 2 cont..) Processes captured Impacts quantified Types of Impacts • Effectiveness in reducing On- soil loss • Production gains site • Effect in improving soil fertility and depth • Effect on moisture • water supply conservation and soil water LM • irrigation water holding capacity supply • Power Effect in reducing generation Siltation/sedimentation Off- • Reservoirs/dams • Biodiversity site • Lakes • Protection of • On farm lands productive lands
  11. 11. What do we have? Processes captured Impacts quantified Types of Impacts • Effectiveness in reducing On- soil loss • Production gains site • Effect in improving soil We have some data and depth fertility (SCRP/HLI/EIAR but need • Effect on moisture • water supply to be organized) conservation and soil water LM • irrigation water holding capacity supply • Power Effect in reducing generation Siltation/sedimentation Off- • Reservoirs/dams • Biodiversity site • Lakes • Protection of No measured • On farm lands productive lands data
  12. 12. What is missing or less addressed? • Offsite processes and impacts of LD • Info on impacts of LM practices (only few) • Info on impacts of integrated land management practices • Socio-economic aspects of SLM and LD (need more work)
  13. 13. Approach 3: Methods of extrapolation 1. Selection of appropriate models and tools – Modeling • Model – Choice of appropriate model » USLE – On-site processes (soil loss) » SWAT- Off-site process (siltation) • Gauged values to calibrate and validate model » SCRP watersheds – GIS • To identify recommendation domains
  14. 14. Methods of extrapolation cont… 2. Steps to be followed • Characterize each station – Biophysical parameters – Socio-economic parameters • Reclassify country coverages of bio-physical and SE parameters • Identify recommendation domains • Test model on station • Calibrate and validate model using gauged station data • Apply model on recommendation domains
  15. 15. Processes of Identifying Recommendation Domains using GIS Environment (soil loss, Nutrient loss & SLM) Develop Reclassify country Overlay Ranges of coverage and develop (model) parameters layers for each parameter - Altitude - Rainfall - LGP - Slope Recommend. GIS - Soil Domains Modelling -Farming system -Land Use …etc

  32. 32. 2.

  33. 33. Procedures • Determine nutrient content of dung, crop residue and major crops • Set conversion coefficient - % of energy consumption covered by dung and crop residue per person, per year • Convert this to dung and CR used • Convert this to N & P loss from dung and CR
  34. 34. Procedures cont… • Estimate production of major crops for each zone and • Convert this into N & P loss • Calculate Nutrient addition by different means • Calculate net nutrient loss: gr db cb A N N N N N gr P db P cb PA P P
  35. 35. 3. Quantifying impacts of SLM practices 1. Scenario 1. Only Physical SWC measures – Use SCRP values – Adjust P factor 2. Scenario 2. Physical SWC with SF/SMM – Extrapolate from existing values or measure – Adjust P factor and may be C factor 3. Scenario 3. All best LMP – Extrapolate of measure – Adjust P factor and C factor 4. Area closure and forestry – – Extrapolate or measure – adjust P factor and C factor

  39. 39. 1. Quantifying siltation using SWAT • SWAT is a dynamic watershed/basin model • Developed by USDA-ARS • It simulates: – Crop growth – Hydrology – Soil erosion – Climate – Updates model parameters on a daily basis – It takes point sources as input – Impacts of land management practices – Point and non point pollutant • Output: – Sediment yield – Runoff – Nutrient and pollutant balance – Etc……
  40. 40. 1. Quantifying siltation using SWAT cont…. • SWAT simulates at three levels – HRU • Homogenous units in terms of soil and land use – Sub-basin (smaller watershed) • Holds a number of HRU – Basin (bigger watershed) • Holds a number of sub-basins • Has GIS interface and the model can run through GIS • Has weather generator
