New MSc thesis subjects within the WASSA project in Burkina Faso

A PhD project started in 2013 and there are now several opportunities for doing a MSc thesis subject in Burkina Faso on soil degradation and restoration at the chairgroup of Farming Systems Ecology (FSE) of Wageningen University in The Netherlands. Check out two new thesis subjects published on the website of FSE.

Use of native woody shrubs for restoration of degraded soils in Soudano-Sahelian agro-ecosystems.htm

Assessing and mapping soil degradation in local farm communities in Soudano-Sahelian agro-ecosystems.htm

Within these subjects you can focus on one or more relevant fields like agroecology, agroforestry, soil sciences, social sciences,GIS, and modelling.
