Action Against Desertification

Activities

Action Against Desertification assists local communities, government and civil society to restore drylands and to manage fragile ecosystems in a sustainable way. 

It employs the following activities:

Land restoration: putting rural communities at the heart of restoration and upscaling interventions to meet the massive needs.

Non-timber forest products: supporting livelihoods and sustainable management of natural resources.

Capacity development: strengthening capacities in sustainable land management and land restoration.

Monitoring and evaluation: collecting data, keeping track of progress made, measuring bio-physical and socio-economic impact.

Information sharing: knowledge exchange and awareness raising land degradation and desertification.

South-South cooperation: sharing lessons learned to help partners halt and reverse land degradation.
