    Abstract: Mapping of erosive risks is a prerequisite in an erosion control approach. It makes it possible to locate the sectors most vulnerable to erosive processes. The establishment of the erosive risk map results from the spatialization of the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (Rusle). This equation is combined with Geographic Information Systems (GIS)...
