The theme of the workshop was the establishment of capacity for the rehabilitation of degraded drylands, using site-specific examples of biosphere reserves to assess potential natural vegetation and viable wildlife populations in drylands. The project also seeks to apply scientific methods for improved management of marginal drylands. Combating desertification by rehabilitating degraded lands can be done successfully, using existing, often traditional techniques. It is for this reason that workshops such as these are paramount to providing and sharing practical and inexpensive solutions to common problem.
