Key Messages and Recommendations
• Combating desertification and land degradation while mitigating the effects of drought can secure long-term socio-economic benefits for people living in drylands and reduce their vulnerability to climate change.

• Land tenure insecurity, especially for women, often prevents farmers from adopting sustainable land management practices

Biodiversity in rangelands is decreasing, due to intense utilization
