Carbon Sequestration & Hydraulic Characteristics under Conservation in Malawi
Fanya juu terraces comprise embankments (bunds), which are constructed by digging ditches and heaping the soil on the upper sides to form the bunds. A small ledge or ‘berm’ is left between the ditch and the bund to prevent soil sliding back. The typical dimensions for the ditches are 0.6 m deep and 0.6 m wide. The bund has a height of 0.4 m and a base width of 0.5-1 m.
