    The rangelands of West Asia and North Africa are the grazing grounds for the Bedouin with their flocks of sheep, goats and camels and are known as al Badia in the Middle East region. Average annual rainfall in the Badia ranges between 50 and 250 mm (Haddad 2006). Despite its scarcity, rainwater is generally poorly managed and much of it is lost through runoff and evaporation. To improve production in hese areas, there is a need for the sustainable management of natural resources – land and water (FAO 1983).

    The literature identifies two common approaches for estimating technical efficiency. One approach is based on non-parametric, non-stochastic, linear programming. This suffers from the criticism that it does not take into account the possible influence of measurement error and other noise in the data (Coelli, 1995). The second approach uses econometrics to estimate a stochastic frontier function, and to estimate the inefficiency component of the error term. The disadvantage of this approach is that it imposes an explicit and possibly restrictive functional form on the technology.

    Implementation of land management policies influences land use and hence
    causes environmental change. Taking the Ordos rangelands in China as a case
    study, this paper explores the potential of remote sensing to assess in dryland
    areas the impacts of policies on the environment. Thirteen Landsat images of the
    period 1978 2010 were acquired and those corresponding to the starting dates of
    implementation of different policies were selected for land-cover change analysis;
    others were used to check the detected change and track the normalized

    This laboratory manual of analytical methods has been compiled to be used primarily by research
    assistants, technicians and student trainees working in the laboratory. The methods have been
    selected from different sources and adapted for routine analyses in the WANA region. A detailed
    description of the methods can be found in the original publications listed in the references. As
    analytical techniques are developed and improving, this manual will be subject to continuous
    revision. Any helpful suggestion and feedback from users is most appreciated.

    République arabe syrienne, Asie occidentale

    The world is witnessing a period in its history when the increasing socio-political upheavals are taking the lives of thousands, and destroying the natural wealth of our planet. Poverty and food insecurity are two key forces driving this destruction. These ongoing problems compound those already being posed by an increasing shortage of water, scarcity of productive land, an expanding population, and the threat of global warming.

    The year 2002 marked ICARDA's 25th anniversary, and coincided with several honors and awards for the center's excellence in research. Research on developing high-yielding kabuli chickpea varieties that thrive in cool, wet winter conditions earned the 2002 King Baudouin Award of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), jointly with the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), which focuses on desi chickpea.
