About this book

Some one billion people live in the drylands, areas that receive low and variable rainfall. Populations in the developing regions are growing rapidly, agricultural production is falling and people are increasingly migrating out of drylands to already over-populated cities, or into marginal lands and forests, causing land degradation. This book analyses what exactly can be done about this situation, based on experience and the results of research and actual field projects.
