about this item

This book is about the ‘how’ of desertification control as opposed to an analysis of the ‘why’ and fills a gap in the desertification-related literature in that it shows what to do in situations ranging from fixing mobile sands to arresting  accelerated  soil erosion in sloping lands.  There are numerous illustrations to show the successful techniques.This compilation demonstrates that desertification and land degradation can be controlled and reversed with existing techniques in such widely varying environments as the Sahel of Africa to Sri Lanka and the Philippines in SE Asia, from mountains in Lesotho to low lands on desert margins in Mongolia. Proven approaches include technical interventions, changes in governance and to the legislative framework and policy reform.  The book fills a gap in the desertification-related literature in that it shows what to do in situations ranging from fixing mobile sands to arresting  accelerated  soil erosion in sloping lands.
