Indicators • Socio-economic • Household Income • Poverty • Food security (amount of calories per person) • Bio-Physical • Carbon sequestration • Sediment loads • Soil erosion • Nutrient balance • Nutrient depletion • Biodiversity (tree and shrub biodiversity and then other biodiversity e.g. bird)

  4. Scenarios • Better Agro forestry Practices • Better Seed Varieties/breeds • Better feed management practices (cut and carry livestock feeding system) • Better Nutrient Management • Climatic change • Output Price Changes • Input Cost Changes • Introduction of Incentive Schemes • Carbon credits • Water harvesting for crop production • Tenure systems
