Local Assessment PDF Print E-mail

The LADA methodology for land degradation assessment at local level has been prepared in collaboration with the University of East Anglia and the WOCAT. It consists in a manual and several annexes meant to provide guidelines for the characterization of local areas in terms of land degradation and conservation measures.

The local assessment is to be made according to low cost, speedy procedures, following a participatory approach in order to obtain a stronger involvement of the local stakeholders. The assessment aims at identifying not only the actual status and circumstances of land degradation, but also its historical development and the perception of it by the people, in order to allow a better understanding of the phenomenon, and provide pertinent information for the definition of response measures. To this end, both biophysical and socio-economic indicators are taken into consideration for the assessment.

The local assessment is meant to have a strong linkage with the national assessment through the use of the national LUS map as a basis for identify and sampling the assessment areas.
