About this book

Covers the interrelationship between desert peoples and their environment including chapters on: human causes of desertification; environmental problems of living in arid regions; population dynamics in arid regions, and management, responsibilities, and policies. Also addresses questions of soil and vegetation degradation, scarce water resources, and how these shape the human population in terms of numbers and density of inhabitants.
