Often, when people think of drylands, they think of deserts and hostile living conditions, economic hardship and water scarcity. But that is not what drylands are all about. If managed well, drylands are often fertile and capable of supporting the habitats, crops and livestock that sustain the entire global population.


Poverty, induced by food and water insecurity, will continue to haunt this world for the decades to come. Addressing desertification, land degradation and drought through the sustainable use of land and water resources should constitute one of the cornerstones of the green economy
