The objectives of the conference were to strengthen the visibility of the European Commissions research activities and other related actions and policies in the field of Mediterranean desertification, to promote the public and policy makers awareness of the extent, nature and urgency of the desertification problem and to translate scientific research for policy development into practical action. The conference identified future research priorities at the European level, in particular, identifying gaps in scientific knowledge with respect to policy and management and improving EU actions in this field. This volume includes the presentation of the keynote speakers. It contains topics on the contemporary understanding of European desertification, progress in desertification research, experiences from the EU and outside Europe, and issues in relation to policies and practises towards mitigation of desertification.
