Abstract/Summary:
Over fifty scientists from fourteen countries and international organizations representing various scientific disciplines took part in this important event. They addressed issues of desertification, in particular with regard to restoring degraded dryland areas, and the conservation and sustained management of freshwater resources in the world’s dry zones. Accordingly, these proceedings contain a series of case studies from Africa and Asia providing not only new insights into site-specific problems but also solutions which may be adapted to resolve similar problems in other desertification-affected areas of the world.
