FAO upon recommendation of its members identified the need to initiate a comprehensive analysis, evaluation and documentation of relevant forestation and restoration programmes in and projects in drylands in collaboration with its member countries, local partner organizations and international organizations and institutions.This endeavour aims at compiling and evaluating the lessons learnt and developing operational guidelines for the restoration of degraded forests and lands within the difficult environmental socio-economic framework conditions in drylands, for the benefits of the local population. The study focuses on Mediterranean type ecosystems (Mediterranean basin, South Africa, SW Australia, Chile and NW America), the Sahel and other dryland countries in Africa, West and Central Asia, Northern China and Latin America.
